Helldorado Returns To Las Vegas This Weekend

Helldorado_posterOne of the long standing traditions that celebrates Las Vegas history is the Helldorado Parade.

“A Las Vegas tradition since 1934, Helldorado Days recaptures the spirit of the Old West.  It is a celebration of our community’s western heritage for residents and visitors alike!”

This year there’s even more as the RODEO and CARNIVAL returns to downtown Las Vegas for 4 nights starting on Thursday. There’s a HUGE KICKOFF PARTY Wednesday night at the Fremont Street Experience.

The Parade is Saturday Night starting at 7pm along the 4th Street parade route going north from Charleston.

I’ll be driving Dr. Lonnie Hammegren’s float once again this year, along with the Classic Las Vegas folks.
