The annual holiday tree lighting will be Tuesday, November 26 at 5pm followed by the opening of Rink on the River.
This fun and magical event features musical entertainment and a much anticipated countdown of the tree lighting with City Council members to kick off the holiday season in downtown Reno. The tree is at the corner of S. Virginia and First Streets, next to the Rink on the River. Billinghurst Middle School Choir will sing holiday carols starting at 5 pm.
Bring a donation of new gloves, socks, hats or scarves for the Salvation Army and get free skate rental!
Run, Dance, THEN CRAWL at this year’s Reno Zombie Crawl affair!
Want to experience a day that’s completely unmatched anywhere in the world? Want to take part in one of the largest zombie crawls ever? In the BEST downtown for pub crawls in the nation?
Not only that, but do you want a FULL DAY of zombie themed events, even for all-ages to get involved???
The 6th Annual Reno Zombie Crawl is now a full day of events:
RUN at 10:00 AM
This year the Reno Zombie Crawl is hosting our first ever No Brainer Humans vs Zombies 5K fun run! It’s all ages and it’s going to be zany fun! Plus, all 21 & over participants will receive a FREE ZOMBIE CRAWL CUP to enjoy the evening’s festivities! Get more information and register here >>
DANCE at 7:00 PM
When the Reno Zombie Crawl began, we traditionally took a break midway through the event to dance to Michael Jackson’s Thriller. What began as a fun dance has now become its own event, as Thriller Under The Arch attracts hundreds of dancers and participants to the Historic Reno Arch! This event is all-ages and free, and this year we’re looking for 1,000 dancers to break our previous record! Get info and learn to dance here >>
