Las Vegas Days (formerly known as Helldorado Days), an annual cowboy-themed event celebrating Las Vegas’ tribute to the Wild West, will offer two nights of rodeo at the all-new Core Arena Friday-Saturday, May 10-11, as well as the annual Helldorado Parade May 11. The Commission for the Las Vegas Centennial is sponsoring the rodeo, along with The Plaza Hotel & Casino.

“Las Vegas Helldorado Days were a long-held tradition, and we are excited to welcome the rodeo back home to downtown Las Vegas this year,” said Jonathan Jossel, CEO of the Plaza Hotel & Casino. “We are proud of our history and now with the Plaza’s Core Arena, we can pay homage to our western roots while offering an unforgettable experience for today’s residents and visitors. We appreciate the support of the Commission for the Las Vegas Centennial and look forward to working with the city of Las Vegas on creating an exciting rodeo event that brings our community together where Las Vegas got its start – downtown Las Vegas.”

The rodeo will feature seven events: bull riding, barrel racing, team roping, tie-down roping, steer wrestling, saddle bronc riding and bareback riding, and is sanctioned by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association. Admission to the rodeo May 10-11 is free; rodeo hours are 5 to 7 p.m. More details are available at https://www.plazahotelcasino.com/entertainment/core-arena/.

All community members were invited to submit entries in the Helldorado Parade at no charge – schools, local businesses, car clubs, equestrian groups, civic groups, nonprofits and more. The 2019 Helldorado Parade is scheduled for 10 a.m. Saturday, May 11, downtown on Fourth Street from Gass to Stewart avenues. An independent panel of judges will decide on the award winners for the best entry, most creative, best theme, best float, best equestrian entry, best car club or motorized vehicle, and best walking group. See the map for parking opportunities and staging areas and parade route. Call 702-229-4859 for more parade information.
