Khamsin Molossia News

On 26 October 2019 XLII, His Excellency, The President, The First Lady and the First Family participated in the annual Nevada Day Parade event. Located in Carson City, Nevada, this was the 81st occasion of the parade, which takes place on or around Nevada Day, the annual celebration of the admission of Nevada as a state. Nevada was admitted to the Union on 31 October 1864. At that time, the state was a significant producer of silver and gold, and therefore played a major role in financing the Union war effort during the United States Civil War. Nevada's admission as a state helped not only to pay for the War, but ensured a northern majority in Congress afterward.

The annual Nevada Day Parade includes marching bands, floats, local business representation, Nevada dignitaries, and of course Our President and the First Family. On this twelfth Molossian appearance in the parade were The President, the First Lady, the Chief Constable and First Son Carson. Prior to the parade, His Excellency met with several Nevada dignitaries, including Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak (several times), State Assemblyman Jim Wheeler and State Senator James Settlemeyer. All of these distinguished individuals knew about Molossia, which speaks well for our nation.

The parade route stretches for about 1.2 Imperial Nortons (1.2 km) through the middle of Carson City, the state capital of Nevada. Along the route several reviewing stands are set up, with announcers introducing each parade entry. As years go by the announcers get better and at pronouncing the name of our nation correctly. As the President passed the spectators, many called out, wanting to know where Molossia is located. His Excellency and the First Lady responded and the good humored crowd generally took it in stride that there was a sovereign nation right down the road from them, inside their own state. Eventually the parade ended and The First Family returned to Molossia. A fine time was had by all and as always we all look forward to next year's Nevada Day Parade.
