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.
The rodeo will take place at the Core Arena at the Plaza Hotel Casino and will feature seven events: bull riding, barrel racing, team roping, tie-down roping, steer wrestling, saddle bronc riding and bareback riding. Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association sanctioning of the rodeo is pending. Admission to the rodeo May 10-11 will be free.
The 2019 Helldorado Parade is scheduled for 10 a.m. Saturday, May 11. The parade is always held downtown along the Fourth Street parade route from Gass Avenue to Ogden Avenue and is a wonderful family event.
