Nevada Day 2017 Parade Line Up Everyone is interested in when their float, or their friends or kids float, is going to come by
Nevada’s Parade of Arts And Entertainment is more than just this years theme!
Nevadan’s love a parade, but Nevada Day is more than just a parade! It is Nevada’s Heritage Celebration, a gathering of community spirit to salute our state’s past and look ahead to its future. Nevada Day is a grand celebration commemorating admission to statehood on October 31, 1864. Nevadan’s have the distinction of holding the largest statehood celebration in the nation! The highlight is the Nevada Day Parade.
This year’s 79th Nevada Day Parade, which falls on Saturday October 28th, is dedicated to our states Arts and Entertainment, an in depth look at Nevada’s diversified Arts and Entertainment Community. When most folks think of art, paintings and photography come to mind, but that is just a small fraction of what art truly is. Dance, Music, Poetry, Books, Clothing, Theater, and Culinary Cuisine must also be included under the Arts and Entertainment vast umbrella. In 1987 Nevada Day recognized the Arts with “Nevada’s Tribute to the Arts.” Now 30 years later, we would like to look how far Nevada has come in this magnificent and wondrous field. From Petroglyphs left by our Native Americans thousands of years ago, to Arts Cars roaming around the Black Rock Desert during our annual Burning Man Festival, it’s time to reflect on all the Art and Entertainment that make up this beautiful state of ours.
