May is Historic Preservation Month In Las Vegas and Nevada

Posted: 01 May 2014 01:06 PM PDT

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.

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.
