Governor Gibbons released the following statement commemorating Nevada Day:
"Each year, Nevadans across the Silver State join together to commemorate October 31, 1864, the day Nevada was admitted to the Union. This annual celebration of Nevada’s heritage provides an opportunity for each of us to look back on the past 143 years. As we do so, we are reminded of the can-do pioneer spirit that led to the founding of our great state.
“That unique spirit continues today as Nevada remains one of the last frontier states, where businesses continue to grow and families can achieve the American dream.
“As a Congressman, and now, as your Governor I look forward to the opportunity to participate in Nevada Day festivities, where our unique history is showcased throughout the day. Following the parade on Saturday, October 27th, the Governor’s Mansion will be open for tours so that Nevadans and those visiting our state have an opportunity to visit one of Carson City’s most historic buildings.
“I am honored to celebrate this Nevada Day as your Governor and look forward to visiting with all those who join the festivities this Saturday in Carson City.”
