Las Vegas Halloween Parade, and cool facts about my state.


Cool Fact: Nevada was admitted to the Union as a State on Halloween, October 31st 1864.
We used to, as students, get Halloween off for Nevada day (it was origionally known as admission day), every year. They discontinued that tradition several years back, and now Nevada day is the final Friday in October. So we get a three day weekend at the end of the month. They changed it just before I entered High School. So all through my TOT years, I had the day off to prepare. It was awesome.
