- The 2014 Fiesta Las Vegas Parade & Festival, an annual cultural celebration of the world’s 21 Latin-American countries coinciding with the start of National Hispanic Heritage Month, is proud of its designation as an “Official Nevada 150 Event” and welcomes Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval as Grand Marshal of the Fiesta Las Vegas Parade.
The annual event, taking place on Sept. 13 and 14 in downtown Las Vegas, has been expanded to two-days in order to accommodate growing crowds. This year’s theme is “Que Viva La Fiesta,” or Long Live the Fiesta.
The Fiesta Parade will take place on Sept. 13 from 10 a.m. until noon and stretch along 4th Street between Gass and Stewart Streets. The parade celebrates cultural diversity and highlights the distinctive customs that make Hispanic-Latino culture unique.
It will feature colorful floats, equestrian entries, marching bands, dance and cultural groups.
Awards will also be given in five categories. Cox Communications will tape the parade live and produce a special two-hour television presentation scheduled to air on multiple dates in late Sept. and early Oct. on Cox Channel 96/1096.
