Last year, I went with my youngest son to Virginia City where we sat in the very hot sun to watch camels, emus and ostriches running about the place. It was quite fun and a great photo op! Bring cash as a lot of the vendors didn’t accept credit cards last year. Oh…and sunscreen. The seating is metal stadium benches so something to sit on is helpful. The town is fun to walk through.
We drove on over to Reno and stayed in a hotel there so we could get up early, very early, for the balloon races. We parked at UNR around 4:30am and walked to the park. Wear something warm.
They start with a hot air balloon light show…glowing balloons to music. The sun rises and more balloons are added to the mix until the park is covered with people and balloons everywhere you look. It was a spectacular day.
It was a great weekend.
