Every Las Vegas resident born on May 15, of any year, is invited to march together with a banner in the Helldorado Parade as members of the 5/15 Club. The city of Las Vegas was founded May 15, 1905, when 110 acres in what would later become downtown, were auctioned to ready buyers. To participate in the parade as a 5/15 Club member, go to the online registration form and follow the directions.
Helldorado Days, an annual cowboy-themed outdoor festival celebrating Las Vegas’ tribute to the Wild West, offers a daily rodeo and carnival, exhibits and food, as well as a parade, Whiskerino contest, and other activities.
Created in 1934 and produced by the Benevolent and Protective Order of the Elks Lodge No. 1468 and Las Vegas Elks Helldorado Inc., the 82- year civic event has raised more than $4 million during its history to assist local children’s and veterans’ charities. The parade is sponsored by the Commission for the Las Vegas Centennial.
