The History of Helldorado, Friday, May 2, Las Vegas, NV

Postby lasvegaslynn » Mon Apr 28, 2008 10:42 am

We are thrilled to announce that we have an upcoming panel on the History of Helldorado.

If you are new to town and wonder why there is a Helldorado Celebration (which is coming on May 17th) or if you remember fondly sitting on the curb on Fremont Street watching those beautiful floats go by, come on around and here the stories of how and why Helldorado got started and what it was like.

At one point in the 1950s, it rivaled the Rose Parade in terms of attendance and beautiful floats.

A great evening of history and fun that you won't want to miss!
