Reno Tahoe Celebrates Nevada Day 2012
We love Nevada, and we have a feeling we are not alone. The jubilant mood spreading amongst Nevadans as we near October 31 is not only because we get a holiday at work and school (conveniently near/on Halloween) to honor the place we live – although it’s certainly a perk – but we have some serious pride in our state. Below is a listing of events where you can join us in celebration of our favorite holiday, Nevada Day!
