Nevada Day 2017 Parade Line Up Everyone is interested in when their float, or their friends or kids float, is going to come by
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 will be our states 154th birthday, and also marks 80 year’s since the Nevada Day Celebration moved to our Capitol, and featured a large parade downtown, on main street Carson City. Please check back often, as our 2018 theme will be announced shortly, along with new sponsorship opportunities, and parade applications.
Our Theme for this year’s Nevada Day Celebration is “A State of Economic Diversity”, which showcases the extremely diverse economic makeup of our beautiful state – one of the most diverse in the Union, we feel, but you be the judge. Everything from:
Tourism to Technology, Construction to Cuisine, Mining to Manufacturing, Health care to Hospitality, Gaming to Banking, Energy to Renewable Energy, Ranching to Agriculture, Auto Dealers to Service Centers, Real Estate to Warehousing, Arts to Entertainment, and yes, Legal Prostitution and Cannabis. The list just goes on and on!
Let’s not forget about Sports! The Reno Aces to Las Vegas 51’s, along with Reno 1868 Soccer.The Las Vegas Golden Knights to the Las Vegas Raiders (due 2020), NASCAR, UFC, and NFR. True, we did unfortunately lose the Reno Bighorns, but then we did gain the Las Vegas Aces WNBA Team. Is it just me, or is Nevada becoming a Team Sports destination state as well!
