Applications welcomed for May parade

March 31, 2018 by  

The 2018 Helldorado Parade in Las Vegas, Nevada is currently accepting applications for all those who want to enter a float into the parade later this year.

The fesival began in 1934 to celebrate the birth of Las Vegas, the ways of the West, and the traditions that stem from the days of Helldorado, which refers to the events that took place in Las Vegas in order to draw in more people to the city, as workers who were working on the Boulder Dam began leaving shortly after construction finished.

Those who are interested in entering must stick to these themes in order to get their float or group into the event. Awards and possible cash prizes will be awarded to those with the best floats and groups.

The Helldorado Parade will be taking place on May 12 from 10:00 am to approximately 12:00 noon. It will start at Fourth Street and will run north from Charleston Boulevard to Gass Avenue. There is no fee to apply to enter a float and applications can be found online on the Las Vegas Patch website.

Those who download the application will know that they have the right application when they see the large Helldorado Parade letterheads at the top. These applications must be turned in by April 19 in order to be considered for entry into the parade.
