The final leg of the national 2010 Pink Heals Tour will be concluding in North Las Vegas this weekend.

The tour, featuring two pink fire engines and a pink truck company, is visiting cities across the country to raise awareness about breast cancer. The Pink Heals Foundation, Inc., a nonprofit organization that supports women recovering from cancer treatment, is sponsoring the tour, which began on August 18.

The weekend festivities will begin at 8 p.m. Friday with a concert and silent auction, held at The Club inside the Cannery Casino Hotel, 2121 E. Craig Road.

Between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday, the main Pink Heals event will be held outdoors in the festival area at the Cannery.

This year’s festival will feature local entertainment, food, local vendors, refreshments, screening appointments for free mammograms and other health information. On display will be the tour’s signature pink firefighters and fire trucks, adorned with thousands of signatures of breast cancer survivors, their family members and friends.

North Las Vegas, Clark County, Las Vegas, Boulder City, Henderson and Nellis Air Force Base fire departments will be participating in the festival.
