The Wilbur D. May Museum in Rancho San Rafael Regional Park is hosting their third Great May Center Pumpkin Walk on Saturday, October 18. This new Reno tradition is a favorite for families and people of all ages, and it draws over one thousand visitors each year. Visitors line up to view hand-carved pumpkins throughout the museum and arboretum, and the May Center will have 500 pumpkins on glowing this year! Kids are encouraged to wear Halloween costumes and trick-or-treat during the walk. Fall refreshments such as hot chocolate and cider will be available to keep you warm throughout the night. Go to www.maycenter.com for prices, times, and more information.

Virginia City, one of the most haunted towns in the country, is offering safe trick-or-treating for kids at shops around town as an opportunity to celebrate both the city’s history and the spooky holiday. Later in the evening, Virginia City’s Halloween parade will coincide with the Nevada Statehood parade, which is celebrating Nevada’s 150th birthday. Parade viewers are encouraged to dress up in costume, and the event is a not-so-spooky alternative to scarier Halloween events going on in the city. For a full list of Virginia City’s Halloween events visit www.visitvirginiacitynv.com/events.

On October 26 visit Pumpkinpalooza at Sparks Victorian Square. Here, families can meet with fortune-tellers, build and race a pumpkin in the Pumpkin Derby, compete in a pumpkin seed spitting contest, and end the day with the official Lighting of the Pumpkins and more! Children are invited to wear costumes and participate in the children’s costume parade. It’s a celebration of all things pumpkin and is a fun way to get kids in the Halloween spirit. See http://www.pumpkinpalooza.org/ for more details.

Scheels is hosting two events for the holiday this year. On October 27, stop by Scheels to decorate your own pumpkin! Kids from the Reno area will be getting crafty at 6:00 that evening, hoping to make the perfect Halloween pumpkin to complete their spooky decorations. On October 31, kids are welcome to participate in a Halloween scavenger hunt throughout the store where they will trick-or-treat and have a fun time. For both Scheels events, kids will receive a free Ferris wheel ride. Scheels encourages you to email events RS@scheels.com if you have any questions.

Reno Street Food and Magic 95.5 is hosting their “Truck or Treat” event at Idlewild Park on October 30. With 25 food trucks and 20 candy stations, this is another fun, safe trick-or-treating option for families. The night will be filled with food, candy, and a children’s costume contest, so don’t miss out! See Reno Street Food’s Facebook page for more information.

To make sure your costume is the best on the block check out Faces 4 Fun face painting at Circus Circus Reno for trick-or-treating and costume parties. The team of artists has extended their hours for the Halloween season, and they all have impressive experience with painting and promise to bring your costume, whether is a zombie or a fairy, to the next level.

Happy 150th Birthday, Nevada!

Nevada will be celebrating its 150th birthday this month! There are plenty of fun things to do in the Reno area all month long to cheers to Nevada pride until the big day on October 31st.

NV 150The Nevada Museum of Art exhibit titled The 36th Star: Nevada’s Journey from Territory to State displays significant objects and documents that tell the story of Nevada’s journey to statehood, including the transcription of Nevada’s State Constitution that was sent from Governor Nye to Abraham Lincoln by telegram, the original copy of the Nevada State Constitution, artifacts belonging to Nevada’s first governor, and Civil War-era muster rolls that have never been displayed. The exhibit is on display through November 2, 2014. For more information on this event please visit http://blog.visitrenotahoe.com/nevada-museum-of-art-the-36th-star/.

In various locations throughout Reno and Sparks, the Home Means Nevada event consists of a reading of the Nevada-themed story written by Mark Twain. This reading will be accompanied by music from Shiloh, which will be performed by Julie Machado & Tim Gorelangton. These readings take place on October 1, 2, 9, 19, and 29 of 2014.

The NV150 Western Heritage Festival pays tribute to Nevada’s most significant industries- ranching, mining, railroading, gaming, and the military, and it celebrates their important roles in our state’s history. The festival also celebrates Nevada’s culture and heritage through music, poetry, crafts, and more. It takes place on October 4, 2014 in Victorian Square, Sparks.

At the Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts in Reno you can come watch the Classix Two Home Means Nevada Concert. Over three days in October (the 11, 12, and 14) the Reno Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir, along with the Washoe County School District 6th Grad Honor Choir and UNR piano professor Dr. James Winn, will perform a new arrangement of Home Means Nevada. This performance will also feature Desert Garden by Reno born composer Sean Shepherd, Lost Vegas by Michael Daughtery, and Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 2.

One more event before Nevada’s big day is the 4th Annual Nevada Day Governor’s Banquet. This event, which will be held on October 28, 2014 at the Grand Sierra Resort in Reno, is both a gala tradition and a fundraising event led by Nevada’s Governor Brian Sandoval. The evening will feature special guest speakers, live entertainment, a silent auction, a Nevada birthday cake cutting ceremony, and more! A portion of the proceeds will go to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Nevada, as well as the non-profit Nevada Day, Inc.

On October 30 at 10am, Lt. Gov. Brian Krolicki is inviting all Nevadans to join him for #NevadaSings, an attempt to set a record for the most people in an American state to sing the state song all at once. Nevadans are encouraged to join in at the designated time wherever they may be: schools, offices, parks, etc. Remember to take a photo or video of you and your group singing “Home Means Nevada”, as video or photo proof will be submitted to RecordSetter, a Las Vegas-based company, to verify the record. For rules, directions, “Home Means Nevada” lyrics, and where to submit your proof, visit www.Nevada150.org.

The celebration expands into Virginia City on October 31st with four events to keep the party going. Starting in the afternoon, an unveiling of Steven Saylor’s portrait “Nine Cheers for the Silver State”. This portrait depicts when Virginia City got the news of Nevada’s statehood. The unveiling of this portrait will be followed by a reception, where paintings will be sold to benefit the Comstock Foundation of History and Culture. After the reception, the Virginia City Statehood Parade will cruise down C Street and is expected to be the largest parade in the state for the celebration. Following the parade, children are invited to spend the night trick-or-treating around town. The child-friendly fun starts at 5pm with a costume contest, and all shops will be open late to make the event fun and safe for everyone. At 7pm the Nevada 150 Masquerade Ball begins at Piper’s Opera House. Participants are encouraged to don “period attire”, such as Victorian era or Steampunk costumes. The Ball is comprised of a meet and greet with dignitaries, champagne and hor d’oeuvres, and live music and dancing to bring our state’s birthday celebration to a close.

Feeling Brave? Stay in One of The Haunted Hotels

If you really want a scare, stay overnight to get the full haunted Halloween experience in Virginia City. There are quite a few haunted bed and breakfasts, hotels and motels to choose from, each with their own stories of ghosts and other unexplained mysteries.

The Silver Queen Hotel & Wedding Chapel offers 28 beautifully restored rooms and one of the most notably haunted sleeps in Virginia City. It is said to be haunted by a woman who killed her own baby, then committed suicide in one of the rooms. The Silver Queen offers ghost tours Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.

The Gold Hill Hotel, opened in 1861, is the oldest hotel in Nevada. It is also supposedly haunted. In 1869 a terrible fire killed dozens of miners at the nearby Yellowjacket Mine. It is said these miners have stayed around. Other ghostly appearances at Gold Hill Hotel include a woman that emits a rose fragrance and sounds of giggling children.

If you’d rather stay somewhere less haunted, Virginia City has more lodging options online.
