Saturday, May 14th, 2005

Beginning at 10 a.m. this Saturday, the western-themed Helldorado parade will march along Fourth Street in downtown Las Vegas. The parade, which will feature musicians, cowboys, horses and over 170 floats, is just part of the overall Helldorado Days celebration, being revived this year as part of the city’s 100th birthday celebration. The once annual event began back in 1934 as the Boulder Dam, later renamed Hoover Dam, neared completion. The festival was a tool to bring tourists to town.
