Every August Reno, Virginia City, and Sparks come together to put on one of the largest nostalgic car shows called Hot August Nights. Everywhere you go the streets are filled classic cars, hot rods, race cars and more, live music and entertainment can be found around every corner and lots of vendors. The Casino hotels always have extra things going on. One of them had a drag strip in the parking lot one year. Hotels fill up fast, so book early. I usually book mine close to the downtown, so I can watch the car cruise through town. It’s a great show to hit, if you love cars and music. Oh and don’t forget the food. Some of the best prime rib I’ve every had, was in Reno! I’ve linked Hot August Nights site at the bottom, so you can check out the schedule of events for each day and this years legendary music headliners. Most of all the whole week takes you back to the 50’s.
