Helldorado Days has been a Las Vegas staple since its creation in 1934 to provide entertainment to the nearly 20,000 workers building the Hoover Dam. This festival has touched the lives of many Las Vegas residents, young and old, while also attracting visitors from around the United States who have enjoyed this iconic experience.
“PBR has deep roots in Las Vegas, which for the past 23 years has been the only host of the Built Ford Tough World Finals,” Gleason said. “This city is a true partner, and we’re investing in the revitalization of an iconic family-oriented community event that deserves to flourish.”
