Bluegreen Vacations a leading provider of Colorful Places to Play, today announced that its Las Vegas, Nevada timeshare resort, Bluegreen Club 36, is ready to celebrate Veteran's Day and enjoy the America the Beautiful Music Festival. The event takes place at the Clark County Amphitheater November 11 - 13, 2011.
The America the Beautiful Music Festival is a popular event that brings veterans together to help other veterans. This year's celebration will feature live bands, crafts, food vendors, games, face painting, glass blowing and more. Bluegreen looks forward to providing families celebrating this holiday weekend with an exceptional place to stay during a Las Vegas vacation.
Veteran's Day was originally called Armistice Day to commemorate the end of World War I when a temporary end to the hostilities went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918. A year later, President Wilson declared November 11 as the first celebration of Armistice Day. He urged businesses to suspend operations for two minutes at 11:00 am. On May 13, 1938, an act was passed that made November 11 in each year a legal holiday dedicated to world peace. After the battles of World War II and the Korean War, soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen urged Congress to amend the Act of 1938 by removing the word "Armistice" and replacing it with the word "Veteran." In 1954, President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed into effect Public Law 380--officially changing the name Armistice Day to Veteran's Day--honoring all American veterans of war.
Most of the great Las Vegas attractions are within walking distance of Bluegreen Club 36. Try your luck in a world-famous casino or go for a sure bet and take in a spectacular performance or show.
