This year's Nevada Day Parade through Carson City's Carson Street took place on Saturday, October 28th. Nevada Day itself was Friday, October 27th. Since 2000, this holiday is observed on the last Friday in October, granting Nevadans a three-day weekend.

Originally, Nevada Day—also known as Admission Day—was celebrated on the last day of October, commemorating the admission of the state of Nevada into the union on October 31, 1864.

The march of  bands, groups, celebrities, athletes and others through Nevada's capital always advocates a theme. This year the parade was dedicated to the state's Arts and Entertainment. Here are a few random parade snapshots.
