Public Invited to 1 October Sunrise Remembrance

​The public is invited to a 1 October sunrise remembrance ceremony to honor the lives of the 58 victims who were lost last year. The ceremony will be held at the Clark County Government Center Amphitheater, 500 S. Grand Central Parkway in downtown Las Vegas on Monday, October 1, 2018 at 6:30 a.m. Parking is free.

Clark County and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department will co-host the free event. The speakers are Gov. Brian Sandoval, Sheriff Joe Lombardo, Clark County Commission Chairman Steve Sisolak and Mynda Smith, the sister of Neysa Tonks, one of the 58 who perished on 1 October.

The remembrance will include 58 seconds of silence, a multi-agency honor guard, music from The Academy Singers from the Las Vegas Academy of the Arts, and the release of 58 doves.

Those in attendance also may view the Las Vegas Portraits Project, an exhibit of portraits of the 58 victims who lost their lives in the attack, along with crosses that were erected at the Welcome to Las Vegas sign last year, and "The Art of Healing Mural" in the adjacent Rotunda Gallery.

The event will be carried live on Clark County Television and at Facebook.com/ClarkCountyNV and YouTube.com/ClarkCountyNV.
