Happy 150th birthday Carson City cupcakes

Happy Birthday, Carson City cupcakes - 2,008 of them! From the August 16th celebration of the city's 150th birthday. How cool is this? From Flickr user ScottSchrantz

from the Nevada Appeal:

At 150 years old, Carson City doesn't mind showing its age.

After all, this is a town that takes great pride in its old architecture, old traditions and even older founders, the progeny of some who were on hand to celebrate the capital city's sesquicentennial.

Not long after some of the city's dignitaries cut a ribbon in front of a cake in the shape of Nevada, comprised of 2,008 cupcakes, Marty Lavelle, of Reno, reflected on his day, as he escorted his great-grandfather, a descendant of Abraham Curry, one of Carson City's four founders who purchased a swath of land in Eagle Valley in 1858, through the Carson Nugget parking lot.
