In 1965, the Moapa Valley Fair had a modest beginning and various locations until becoming the Clark County Fair in 1986 with a permanent location on 190 acres in Logandale. The land was secured by grants from the Las Vegas Convention and Visitor’s Authority and the Nevada State Legislature. In 1997 the fair morphed into the Clark County Fair and Rodeo, is run by 4 part time staffers and get this, 500 volunteers! The fair is being held on April 8 11 this year, so call 888-876-FAIR, or visit www.ccfair.com.
Neat Nevada Notes: While Oscar, self-proclaimed the “Happiest Mayor in the Universe,” would like everyone to believe his City of Las Vegas includes the World Renown Las Vegas Strip, it doesn’t! The Las Vegas Strip, possibly named after the Sunset Strip by a Police Officer from Los Angeles, actually rolls through Paradise and Winchester Townships both in unincorporated Clark County. Paradise Township is about 47 square miles, sort of in the middle of Clark County, and includes McCarran International Airport. Paradise is oddly shaped and ranges from South Decatur to Nellis Blvd., and from East Desert Inn Road to Sunset Road and East Silverado Ranch with squiggly boundaries connecting the “dots”. This and other unincorporated areas of Clark County, including Laughlin, Overton, Goodsprings, Jean and Searchlight are governed by the Clark County Commission. Check out cable channel 4 for surprisingly interesting Clark County TV programming or visit www.accessclarkcounty.com.
