May is always one of my favorite months. Not only is the weather “perfect” – it’s also Historic Preservation Month. There are lots of events, a rodeo, tours, concerts, lectures, parades, and more. Below you’ll find the scheduled events and links to the various websites.
Let’s start with the most local of events – Helldorado! There’s the parade, the rodeo, the mustache contest and more. I’ll be riding in the May 17 parade with the Las Vegas Historic Preservation Commission. They’ve moved the rodeo and carnival to Symphony Park this year. Here’s the link to all Helldorado events.
