Nevada Day Parade 2019
Saturday, October 26, 2019, 8:00 am - 4:00 pm in Carson City, NV. Nevada Day is a grand celebration commemorating Nevada's entry into the union.
The "Battle Born" state was the 36th to enter the union on October 31, 1864. In commemoration, the parade is the largest and longest running admission's day celebration in the nation; this year's event will be the 81st annual and is held in Carson City, the state's capital. Over 200 entries (led by law enforcement and public officials) include floats, marching bands, horses, entertainers, youth groups, celebrity guests and even Burning Man creations.
This years theme is Nevada Counties – 100 Years. Why you ask? Well keep reading and hopefully it will make perfect since, like it did for the Nevada Day Committee.
Pershing County became Nevada’s 17th and final county in 1919, hence the 100 years. However we did lose, well kind of, Ormsby County 50 years ago when Carson City and Ormsby were consolidated into one municipal government. Also, a little known fact, in 1987 another county was actually created. Yes, Bullfrog County became our 18th county! Located in a 144 square mile enclave within southern Nye County, Bullfrog unfortunately had a very brief life span. Shortly afterwards, in the Nevada District Court, Nye County challenged the legislation used to create said county, and it was judged to be unconstitutional. This subsequently brought an end to number 18 after less than 2 years.
The last time Nevada Day had a theme honoring all of our counties was back in 1957, so 62 years later, the Committee felt it was about time to revisit it, especially this year as Pershing County turns 100 years old.
As we pay tribute to all of Nevada’s 17 counties, and all the unique splendor each and every one of them has to offer, we also need to remind ourselves that we are all in this together. 17 counties, 1 state, and 1 assume annual statewide birthday celebration!
