Today and Friday will be truly remarkable days for Cirque du Soleil. To start its amazing “One Night for One Drop” extravaganza, 150 men from Cirque du Soleil will walk a symbolic 22 miles from Lake Las Vegas to the Bellagio Fountains.
Upon arrival after 4:30 p.m. today, there will be a water-pouring ceremony with a proclamation read by Mayor Carolyn Goodman to Cirque founder Guy Laliberte honoring the millions of women and girls who walk daily to get water for their families.
Then on Friday, Jerry Nadal, Cirque’s senior VP of Las Vegas resident shows, will present a $1 million gift to our Springs Preserve to support its continuing efforts to support water conservation and sustainable living in the Las Vegas Valley. After the check is presented, a water-conservation rally will feature Olympic gold medalists Missy Franklin, Mary Whipple and Erin Cafaro.
