Clark County released Tuesday a calendar with a number of activities planned across Las Vegas for the 1-year remembrance anniversary of 1 October tragedy. 

On Oct. 1, 2017, gunman Stephen Paddock opened fire on a large crowd attending the Route 91 Harvest Festival in a venue near Mandalay Bay.

More than 800 people were injured, while 58 people were killed. Paddock  was shooting down onto the crowd from the 32nd floor. 

He turned the gun on himself before officers were able to breach his room.

The events will honor the 58 victims, while showing gratitude for first responders and the #VegasStrong, now #VegasStronger community.

“The tragedy of 1 October will never be forgotten by our community and has touched all of us,” said Clark County Commissioner Lawrence Weekly, chairman of the LVCVA’s Board of Directors.  “We organized this effort to share information with everyone about events and activities that are being held in honor of those who lost their lives or were injured, and to offer opportunities that nurture community healing, unity and resiliency.”
