Saddle up, partners! It's time to take a trip back through the untamed Old West and enjoy some Las Vegas cowboy culture at Helldorado Days from May 17 - 20.
Helldorado Days has a rich history - it began in 1934 and was once used as the backdrop for a Roy Rogers movie. This year's four-day festival kicks off with Cowboys for a Cure - Wear Pink Night on May 17 to support breast cancer awareness for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure® Southern Nevada. On May 18 and 20, you can also catch the excitement of PRCA professional rodeo. Enjoy a carnival, exhibits and food vendors on the rodeo grounds nightly from 5 p.m. to midnight, with rodeo events starting at 8 p.m.
On Saturday, May 19, don't miss one of Helldorado's signature events, the Helldorado Days Evening Parade, which begins at 5 p.m. in Downtown Las Vegas. The parade route runs on Fourth Street from Gass Avenue to Ogden Avenue.
Whether you're there for the parade, rodeo or other fun events, such as the Whiskerino Contest to see who has the longest or most unique beard, there's always plenty of Wild West fun to be had at Helldorado Days! Proceeds help children and veterans in Southern Nevada. For more, see ElksHelldorado.com.
