October 27, 2017 – Certain to be the best year yet, The 2017 Las Vegas National, CSI4*-W is creating quite a buzz. Especially on Spectacular Saturday, November 18th, when the doors open at 5:00pm for jumping, jugglers, magic, and much more…

The festivities begin as attendees enter the South Point Equestrian Arena concourse greeted by the Red Bucket Equine Rescue Welcome Center. While perusing the latest in equestrian fashion and tack, try the ‘Do Good and Juggle Challenge‘ with Jacob Weiss of Playing by Air, create a memory at the Smash Photo Booth with fun props and interactive Vegas backdrops, capture the moment in caricatures with world-renowned artist Ken Hofbauer, seek out Modern Magician Rob Anderson, who will mesmerize you with his talents, and have Amazing Face Painting give you a new look for the night.

In addition, starting at 6:15pm, the winners of The Las Vegas National Saturday Spectacular Giant Giveaway will be announced. Enter the giveaway online at thelasvegasnational.com/giveaway before Friday, November 10th, for a chance to win over $5,000 in fabulous prizes.
