When you’re a local, you probably had gone to more than a few times since this event started in 1982. As a visitor and someone who’s new in the area, this is probably an event you would want to attend during your visit and while here in Reno, NV. The Super Glow Show which happens around 5:00 a.m., is a warm reception to experience! The Mass Ascension at 7:00 a.m. is a wonderful thing to see!

Wherever there is beauty, there will also be the ugly side of things but the one ugly thing that was turned into a beauty, are the thousands of bicycles left behind… LOVE the idea that these bicycles can be put to good use for those who have lost from this hurricane season.

Labor Day Weekend Is Here!

Labor Day Weekend is here!

Labor Day Weekend is here, and it is being celebrated with REALTY WORLD – Ballard Company’s 50th Year Anniversary in real estate business and industry! A solid company that has survived the ups and downs of real estate market in decades. Celebrating a long holiday weekend outdoors at a Picnic in the Park together with our families, friends and relatives as well as clients, is such a wonderful feeling and a great sight to see. 🙂

Sometimes, it only takes one good look at our surroundings and see why life can be interesting and colorful… Watching the people around mingling and making new friends with good food & drinks to share. Having great conversations with one another, seeing the smiles and hearing the laughter with fun & games provided. These scenes are sometimes enough to observe and make someone smile, feeling happy and warm inside. A gathering such as this, is what makes us all human… After all, what are failures/successes & sadness/happiness if we have no one to share it with?

Hot August Nights

Well, Hot August Nights doesn’t just refer to the hot summer weather in the the month of August here in Reno, Nevada. It is one of the most popular and biggest events of the year!

A lot of local and out-of-town folks come in to the “The Biggest Little City in the World” to watch and/or join the parades of Show Cars. There are various locations and places in town, that locals and visitors alike are able to go, see and/or auction off all kinds of vehicles, from an old, beautiful & remodeled vintage cars to customized trucks and other salvaged vehicles that are made new again. It is sooo much fun!..to see the ingenuity, creativity and resourcefulness of crafty people who work on some of these things ordinary people wouldn’t think about putting motors and wheels on them and make them run! 😉

I took a lot of pictures on my first Hot August Nights watching the parade in downtown Reno on Virginia St. It was definitely memorable especially with this original piece below.
