Photos: a look back in the Pahrump Fall Festival

If you couldn’t make it to the 2017 Pahrump Fall Festival or were so busy with all the fun at Petrack Park, here’s a photo page looking back at the festivities.

The 53rd annual event, which got underway Sept. 21 at Petrack Park, wrapped up Sunday afternoon.

Festivities included a parade, music, dancing, two nights of rodeo action, food, amusement rides, crafts and clothing, a demonstration by a K-9 unit of the Nye County Sheriff’s Office and more.

“We thought we had a great year and all the vendors I spoke to were very pleased,” Pahrump Valley Chamber of Commerce CEO Chris Erwin said for a story earlier this week.

Erwin, meanwhile, said chamber officials plan to hold a post-festival meeting, to discuss this year’s event and plan for the 2018 Pahrump Fall Festival.

“With this event, occurring once a year, we know that even though the festival is four days, we have been planning for it for the past six months leading up to it,” Erwin said. “It was a lot of work, but we are happy with the results. We will probably have a wrap-up meeting in the next couple of weeks to discuss this year’s festival. I don’t anticipate any additional changes, but I know the parade route will be a hot topic of discussion.”
