Las Vegas Celebrates Its Centennial

A Message From Las Vegas Mayor Oscar B. Goodman

On May 15, 2005, Las Vegas turned 100 years old. The Centennial Celebration Committee commemorated our 100th birthday as only Las Vegas could by hosting a birthday party that was bigger and brighter than the neon lights on the Las Vegas Strip! 

The celebration kick-off began on December 31, 2004, and lasted for more than a year. The centennial was a 365-day party with the largest concentration of our Centennial taking place between May and July 2005.
