The monthly First Friday street festival, in downtown Las Vegas, is putting the "art" in "AntARTica" for August's event.
An art installation of glaciers, penguins and interactive fun will be on display, on Casino Center Boulevard, between Charleston Boulevard and Colorado Avenue, organizers said. The display will be available from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m.
