Vice President Mike Pence is the featured guest for this year's Morning in Nevada PAC's 3rd annual Basque Fry, Nevada Attorney General Adam P. Laxalt announced on Friday.

The event is scheduled to take place on Aug. 26 at Corley Ranch in Gardnerville.

"We are truly excited for Nevada to welcome Vice President Mike Pence to this year's 3rd Annual Basque Fry event," Laxalt said. "This has truly become the grassroots event for Nevada conservatives and Republicans, attracting residents from all 17 counties. With live music, a great lineup of speakers, fun and games for the kids and some delicious Basque barbecue, we look forward to another successful summer event that is affordable for the whole family."

Individual tickets can be purchased for $40. Kids are free and there will be special VIP packages and sponsorships available, as well.
