Las Vegas celebrates their annual Helldorado event on Saturday, May 11th. The parade is part of Las Vegas Days, formerly known as Helldorado Days, the annual cowboy-themed event with a nod to the Wild West. The event is an annual cowboy-themed event first held in 1934 as an event celebrating Las Vegas’ past as part of the Wild West. The parade is always held downtown along the Fourth Street parade route from Gass Avenue to Ogden Avenue and is a wonderful free family event. Enjoy floats, marching bands, cowboys and cowgirls on horseback, car clubs and more. The event was sponsored by the Commission for the Las Vegas Centennial.
