It all concludes with the Official Hot August Nights Grand Finale Parade in Downtown Reno on Sunday, August 7 at 10 am.
Hot August Nights started 36 years ago in 1986 as an ode to the 1950s and ‘60s. The parade of classic hot rods and music were already nostalgic. Plus, it was a way for locals to come together, support their community, and fill the tourism gap that usually came with the month of August. Part of the tradition has always been raising money for charity, and it still remains the same year after year.
Check out this beloved local event. It’s a great way to enjoy the end of summertime.
