To Helldorado in a handbasket

How disappointing! We attended the Helldorado parade Saturday night and were aghast at the lack of historical relevance. Wasn’t it part of Nevada’s 150th birthday celebration?

It could have been renamed the pandering political candidates parade, as they made up a high percentage of the entries. Yeah, I vote because someone hands me a piece of penny candy at a parade!

How many four-year high schools are there in Clark County with marching bands? Only five found the event important enough to participate in.

Now I understand why the crowds were sparse.
