A downtown parade kicked off Las Vegas Days on Saturday morning.
A free Las Vegas Days Festival was being held at Centennial Plaza after the parade.
The parade was first held in 1935, and is sponsored by the Commission for the Las Vegas Centennial.
Previously known as Helldorado Days, May 15 is the 117th anniversary of the land auction in 1905, which marks the beginning of Las Vegas.
The Las Vegas Days celebrates the city’s western roots and usually includes floats, high school marching bands, cowboys and cowgirls on horseback, car clubs, nonprofits and more.
