LAS VEGAS (KLAS)– After taking a year off due to the pandemic, the Nevada Day parade was back in full force in Carson City.
Festivities started Saturday morning with the Nevada Pancake Breakfast at the Governor’s Mansion and then later the Nevada Day Classic Run and Walk.
The 2021 parade theme was “Historic Moments in Nevada,” which kicked off with a military aircraft flyover and a marching band from the University of Nevada, Reno.
Thousands of people came out to celebrate Nevada’s 157th birthday.
The festivities will continue into Sunday afternoon with trick-or-treating in Carson Mall. Candy and goody bags will be given to 300 children on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Following that, Gov. Sisolak and his wife will be passing out candy from 5 to 8 p.m., at the Governor’s Mansion in Carson City.
Nevada Day parade has been held annually since 1938 to commemorate Nevada gaining statehood on Oct. 31, 1864.
