Greetings,

There's no word yet on the The Great Reno Balloon Race, but it is tentatively scheduled for September 11th-13th, but it is a week after the cancelled Sparks Rib Cookoff.

Hoping they won't cancel the Air Races. That's a fun event.

The big motorcycle event, Street Vibrations is scheduled for September 24th - September 27th, and no decision has been made to cancel yet.

Sincerely,

Mr.NiceGuy  :)

 Any word on the Balloon Races?  I hear they have also cancelled Hot August Nights and the Reno Rodeo. (I didn't know they had one.)  I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the Air Races.  They (Airrace.org) will make a firm decision by the end of June.

Greetings,

Looks like there are more Reno event cancellations due to Covid-19. 

Here are a few of them:

Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook Off canceled this year

Sorry for the bad news, but I felt if people were planning on coming to the Reno area to get away this gives you a heads up of what's going on, or what's not going on.

Well, at least the casinos and malls are open!

Sincerely,

Mr.NiceGuy  :)
