LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
Topics of magic and space are in focus this weekend during speaking events in downtown Las Vegas.
Organizers of the Downtown Speaker Series plan to host famed Strip entertainer David Copperfield on Friday, with an ice cream mixer slated for 3 p.m. and the speaking event at 4 p.m.
Organizers said, due to overwhelming demand, up-close seats were limited to those who reserved free tickets through TicketCake.com. As of Thursday, those tickets were sold out.
People, though, are welcome to view the event via a live stream from an overflow trailer at The Learning Village, organizers said.
The Learning Village will also host a speaking event featuring Jane Poynter on Saturday. Poynter, a member of the Biosphere 2 earth science research facility in Arizona, is slated to speak on plan to bring space technology and tourism to downtown Las Vegas.
That event is set to begin with a lunch mixer at 11 a.m. and the speaking engagement at noon.
The speaking events will take place at 727 Fremont St. in downtown Las Vegas.
