Downtown Boys & Girls Club
In light of the “extreme” success of last year’s event, interactive nightlife venue Insert Coin(s) will host the second annual Hometown Heroes BMX Exhibition and street party on Sunday, Sept. 1 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. An all-ages event, Hometown Heroes is a great opportunity to bring the whole family out to experience action sports, and see everything that downtown has to offer. With the streets of Freemont East as its backdrop, the event will feature BMX riding from local amateurs and talented professionals, as well as the chance to win one of several coveted raffle prizes.
Hosted by BMX pro and MTV reality star Ricardo Laguna, Hometown Heroes gives guests the chance to witness the excitement of live action sports demonstrations, while contributing to the greater good through the purchase of raffle tickets or making cash donations to support the Downtown Boys & Girls Club. Anticipated raffle items include BMX bikes, autographed skateboards, a “night out” Downtown, and much more.
Immediately following the outdoor event, Insert Coin(s) welcomes guests 21 and over to an after party inside their venue, with music curated by Life is Beautiful, and some of Las Vegas’ hottest DJ’s. Bar proceeds from the entire night will also be donated in support of the chosen charity.
“This very special event was conceptualized to focus on celebrating action sports as a positive outreach to Las Vegas’ youth, as well as a creative way to encourage people of all ages to enjoy the Fremont East Entertainment District in a different way,” said Bree “DJ88” DeLano, Insert Coin(s) Entertainment Director and Hometown Heroes curator.
