2007 Theme


Nevada Day - Nevada became a state (admitted to the Union) October 31, 1864, so Nevada Day is October 31st of each year.  However, with the passage of AB396 by the 1997 Nevada State Legislature, Nevada voters, on November 3, 1998 advised the 1999 legislature they wanted to celebrate Nevada Day on the "last" Friday in October beginning in 2000.  The legislature, after much heated debate, complied. Nevada Day is presently a state holiday recognized on the last Friday in October with the parade on the Saturday following. This year Nevada Day will be observed Friday, October 26, 2007 and the Nevada Day Parade will be held Saturday, October 27th, starting promptly at 10:00 A.M. rain or shine! [read more]
