Nevada officially became a state on Oct. 31st, 1864 and was one of only 2 states admitted into the Union by President Abraham Lincoln during the American Civil War (West Virginia was the other one).
In the year 2000, the Nevada State Legislature voted to officially recognize the last Friday in October as the state holiday and then have the parade the following day (Saturday), which this year falls on Oct. 29th.
