Description: Friends of the Fort, a non-profit organization who support community events and projects at the Old Las Vegas Mormon Fort State Park, a Nevada State Park in Las Vegas, will be hosting our 14th Annual “Nevadween” event on October, 26, 2013. Each year they strive to share the rich history of Nevada, and celebrate Nevada’s birthday, in combination with a family-friendly Halloween event. It’s a fun way to share history with children through pioneer games, historical scavenger hunts, music and other activities.  This year, they are adding a Historical Costume Contest, and we are looking forward to seeing many of the children dressed as people from Nevada’s past.  We are also having an activity of decorating a State of Nevada shaped cookie for children to decorate and take home.  The admission is simply the Nevada State Park fee of $1 for anyone 13 years old or older.  All of our Nevadaween activities are free.
