Got this idea from another Post...(Thanks, PRN!!!!
What events are available where YOU live?
Here in Reno, there are a multitude of events that take place throughout the year... here are a list of just a FEW... primarily the ones I personally enjoy... The list is by no means complete.
Winter: Skiing... The Reno/Lake Tahoe areas offer many Ski Resorts and areas for other Winter activities for non-skiers. Squaw Valley, Heavenly Valley just to mention two of the more famous Resorts. And, of course, Lake Tahoe is absolutely gorgeous in the Wintertime.
Summer: This is when the area really takes off!! Events include The Reno Rodeo, State Fair, Hot August Nights (A celebration of Classic Cars), Street Vibrations (for the motorcycle enthusiasts), The Best In The West Rib Cookoff (Labor Day Weekend), The Great Reno Balloon Race (ok, it's no Albuquerque... but it's still awesome and beautiful), The Camel Races in Virginia City, The Reno Air Races (3rd weekend in Sept) and The Candy Dance in nearby Genoa....
In addition, there are Chili Cookoffs, Rocky Mountain Oyster Festivals, weekly Farmer's Market, Native American Celebrations, Italian Festivals, a Big Easy celebration... the list goes on and on.
We offer camping, fishing, boating, skiing (snow AND water), hiking, biking, rafting, skydiving.... We're the home of the Ponderosa (of Bonanza fame) and close to Carson City and Virginia City. There are golf courses galore and other activities too numerous to mention.
Let me know if you're coming this way... I'll clue you into ALL the fun places!!!!
