#VegasStrong –October 1st will be three years since the mass shooting in Las Vegas…and my heart still sinks at the thought of it all.  It is a burden that we’ll always carry.  The thing that I take away from this event…three years later is:  We are Vegas Strong! 

October 2020

Yay!! It’s October!  October is probably the biggest, busiest, and ‘funnest’ month of the year in Las Vegas.  He weather is beautiful, the casinos are busy, and the events are plentiful.  Las Vegans are happy during October. When we’re busy, we’re happy. The heat of the summer is gone, and we have some great high points in the month; Football, Hockey, Festivals, and of course, Halloween is always a big celebration. October is the best month of the year.  It’s time for the Golden Knights!  We are suddenly a city of hockey fans, and our Knights are back on the ice. 

Halloween in Las Vegas is a full contact holiday.  Most venues will host some sort of costumed ball—usually having to do with some sort of sexual content, and the more outrageous the better. There are a couple of Fetish and Fantasy balls, several Erotic balls, and the Pimp an’ Ho ball. It’s a strange night and not one for the timid. It is a huge party in Las Vegas. There is not a better city in which to celebrate Hallow’s Eve.

 The daily designations include: October 2 is National Name Your Car Day and World Smile Day.  October 4 is National Taco Day, Golf Day, and Vodka Day.  October 5 is National Do Something Nice Day.  October 8 is National Poetry Day.  October 9 is Leif Erikson Day. October 11 is National Coming Out Day. October 12 is National Free Thought Day, National Kick Butt Day, Native American Day, and Columbus Day (I do find it amusing that Kick Butt day is the day after Coming Out day.)  October 15 is National I Love Lucy Day.  October 24 is National Bologna Day.  October 25 is Chucky, The Notorious Killer Doll Day.  October 28 is National Chocolate Day.  October 30 is National Frankenstein Day.  And October 31 is National Knock-Knock Jokes Day, Magic Day, Girl Scout Founder’s Day, and of course, Halloween.


Nevada Day is a grand celebration commemorating our admission to statehood on October 31, 1864. Nevadan's have the distinction of holding the largest statehood celebration in the nation!

And November 3rd is the end of Daylight Savings time (fall back.)

An interesting note…if your birthday is at the end of September or in the first part of October, your parents probably had sex on New Year’s Eve.
