76th Annual Nevada Day Parade – Carson City
Time: All Day
Location: Downtown Carson City, NV (Carson City)
Description: The 2014 Carson City Nevada Day Parade takes place on Saturday, November 1 in our state’s capital; this year’s parade theme is “Happy 150th Birthday Nevada.” The day kicks off at 8:00am with a hot air balloon launch near the Carson Mall on Carson Street (weather permitting). Then, at 10:00am, a military flyover signals the start of the parade. This annual tradition features over 200 entries, including local law enforcement, public officials, floats, marching bands, a variety of entertainment, and even the occasional surprise celebrity appearance. The parade begins at the intersection of William and Carson Streets, and concludes approximately 3-4 hours later at the intersection of Stewart and Carson Streets. “For more than 75 years, the Nevada Day Parade has been an institution and a source of pride for Nevadans,” says Ken Hamilton, President of Nevada Day Inc., a not-for-profit 501c3 organization. “With this year being the 150th anniversary of Nevada’s statehood, it’s a wonderful opportunity for Nevadans and visitors to come be a part of our state’s history.” More than just a parade, the Nevada Day celebration continues all weekend long, with dozens of special events taking place all around Northern Nevada.
