Today we celebrate Las Vegas's 105 Anniversary and in good order we celebrate Helldorado! The week long festival culminates this weekend with a Grand Parade, Rodeo and Fair. For 76 years Helldorado has been one of our community's longest surviving traditions that celebrates the pioneers that came to this valley and created the city we live in today. You cannot call Las Vegas home if you have not been to Helldorado.

For more information on the Helldorado Festivities please the official Helldorado site http://www.elkshelldorado.com/
