Sunrise Remembrance Ceremony
Clark County and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department will co-host a live-streamed 1 October Sunrise Remembrance ceremony from the Clark County Government Center Amphitheater. Due to COVID-19 directives to limit community spread of the virus, the public is encouraged to view the ceremony from remote locations via social media and over the airwaves.
The speakers at this year’s ceremony are Gov. Steve Sisolak, Sheriff Joe Lombardo, County Commission Chairman Marilyn Kirkpatrick, and Albert Rivera, father of Jordyn Rivera, one of the 58 who perished on October 1, 2017. The remembrance will include one minute of silence, the Southern Nevada Multiagency Honor Guard, music from singer Paige Poggione and remarks from various individuals.
Crowd capacity at the outdoor amphitheater will be capped at 250 people. Those who attend who wish to sit are encouraged to bring lawn chairs since limited seating will be available. Available seating in the outdoor venue will be reserved for family members who lost loved ones in the attack. When capacity reaches 250 people, those arriving to attend the ceremony will be directed to remote viewing locations inside the Government Center. The locations include the Pyramid Room and the County Commission Chambers, both located on the first floor.
The Sunrise Remembrance will be aired live on Clark County Television (CCTV) and local news media TV stations and websites. The ceremony will be carried live at www.Facebook.com/ClarkCountyNV and www.youtube.com/user/ClarkCountyNV/live. CCTV is available in the Las Vegas area on Channel 4/1004 on Cox cable and on CenturyLink on Channels 4 and 1004 as well as in Laughlin on Channel 14 via Suddenlink. CCTV is also available in Boulder City on Channel 4 and in Moapa Valley on Digital Channel 50.3.
