The 2011 Nevada Day Theme:
As the state with the largest formal celebration honoring its admittance into statehood, Nevada will commemorate 147 years of statehood during the annual Nevada Day Celebration, October 28 - 30, 2011 in Carson City.
The highlight of the celebration is the Nevada Day Parade, which will be held this year on Saturday, October 29, 2011. The theme for our 2011 parade is Nevada's Great Outdoors - a tribute to the beauty that provides the backdrop to this amazing state.
Each year the parade meanders its way down Carson Street from 10:00am to 1:00pm. The parade kicks off with an 8:00am hot air balloon launch on Carson Street (weather permitting), followed closely with a 10:00am flyover of F-18 Hornets, F-16 Falcon, from the Fallon Naval Air Station and C-130 Hercules from the Nevada Air Guard.
Awards in 35 categories are given including one for best float, best band, best mounted equestrian group, and best historical.
