Celebrate Independence Day in Baja LasVegastan!
Every summer, the Benevolent Dictatorship of Baja LasVegastan celebrates its independence from the USA. This year the celebration is on July 15, 2018.
This year we also celebrate the 184th anniversary of the disbanding, on July 15, 1834, of the Spanish Inquisition – after nearly 356 years of continuous operation. What outfit would your favorite heresy wear, now that it's legal? Wear it and get a prize!
The Benevolent Dictator will also award a prize to all who present an application for a visa, or for a patent of nobility, or for an ex post facto indulgence for their particular heresy.
Or bring your Greek Old Testament; the Benevolent Dictator turns Septuagint this year.
Place, Date, and Time
Come join us at our capital, Baja LasVegastopolis (completely surrounded by far-south Orange County)! Here is how to get here, either by car or by Metrolink train.
Independence Day is observed on the Third Sunday of July. (Note how conveniently this is centered between the USA Independence Day and the USA Labor Day.) This celebration next occurs on Sunday, July 15, 2018.
Yes, this date has some issues, in that:
Don't worry about it!
Festivities begin at 3:00 PM and end at 6:00 PM.
A tourist visa will be granted for entry into Baja LasVegastan, as a matter of policy, to any respectable alien -- whether from the USA or elsewhere. No formal application is required. However, providing a visa application will get you a door prize (as will providing an application for a Title of Nobility). Entry will be refused only in the extremely unlikely event that the Benevolent Dictator decides – arbitrarily and capriciously, but benevolently – that you are not respectable.
Bribes (money, "birthday presents", and such like) will be summarily refused, and the briber will be denied entry as an undesirable alien. However, two things are (by Benevolent Decree) deemed to not be "bribes":
