The city of North Las Vegas celebrated its 70th birthday with an event Sunday.

The event featured a parade, coordinated by Latina television personality Janet Revere, and performances by Danzo Del Carrizo and Brinco del Chinelo, as well as native Aztec dance, Brazilian dance and Batucada and Capoeira demonstrations. Contestants from Nevada beauty pageants were also set to appear.

There was also a car show and children’s activities.

The event was postponed in April due to weather.
