LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

A week that has seen visits by both presidential candidates will wrap with a visit from First Lady Michelle Obama.

Obama will visit Orr Middle School in Las Vegas on Friday afternoon. She's hosting a grassroots campaign event and will speak about early voting and other issues.

FOX5 was given a peek inside Orr, where crews are frantically preparing for the big arrival.

"She's gonna be talking to voters and really just laying out the difference between the two campaigns and the two candidates – what President Obama did last night at Doolittle Park," said Obama campaign spokeswoman Aoife McCarthy.

Doors at Orr Middle School will open to the public at 11:30 a.m. The event is sold out.

FOX5 will stream the event live on FOX5Vegas.com.
