Las Vegas celebrates 106 years of History TONIGHT in Downtown...

As is tradition in May the city rolls out the Saw-Dust carpet with a huge celebration of our city's birthday. The Helldorado Days Parade begins tonight at 7pm Downtown culminating with a Rodeo and festivities throughout the area. The Historic El Cortez Hotel and Casino will be celebrating the festivities by rolling out the Culinary Carpet with Vegas StrEATS, with a dozen of Las Vegas's most famous food trucks setting up shop in the Jackie Gaughan Plaza on Fremont East. In the Arts District they are rolling out the sounds by bringing you the 18b Music Festival beginning at 6pm...

With all these great activities happening you cannot say that you do not have a bit of pride for this fabulous city we call home. So make sure to come Downtown and celebrate 106 years of Las Vegas Pride and History...
