Nevada Day is a state holiday for the state of Nevada in the U.S that is celebrated on an annual basis. This holiday commemorates the state’s entry into the Union as the thirty-sixth state on October 31, 1864, and also celebrates this state’s frontier legacy. This holiday used to be celebrated on October 31s, the date of the state’s admission into the Union, but it was moved in 2000. Instead, this holiday is now celebrated on the final Friday in October. However, this holiday did coincide with Halloween in ’03, ’08 and 2014.
From just about its inception into the Union until the year 2000, Nevada Day had been celebrated on October 31st. However, in 2000, the Nevada State Legislature decided that the holiday should always be celebrated on a Friday. And that’s because a 3-day long holiday weekend is more likely to brink tourists into the state and would generate a lot more interest in the holiday. As a result, they voted to change Nevada Day to the final Friday in October.
