Five events to discover: Fall break 2021 edition
It’s the Washoe County School District’s fall break, which means many locals have fled to the beach or Disneyland for one last hurray of the summer. If you’re still in town there is plenty to do including the not-mentioned but still sassy Italian festival in downtown Reno on the weekends.
As has become the norm, be sure to check with event organizers to confirm COVID-19 requirements and verify event details.
