Nevada Day is a big deal in our state. This Battle Born state originated on 1864. It’s so big that it’s celebrated both Friday and Saturday and where Halloween is pushed onto the 30th in Carson City. So for us Reno/sparks and surrounding area folks you have Halloween twice.
The Governors Mansion held its own style of Halloween. Governor Sandoval passed out candy outside starting at 5pm until 8pm.
The streets around were blocked off and On his lawn there was a band, fire flame throwers, creepy decor, candy, and LOTS of people! With our Littles we decided not to get into the 2 block long line and trick or treat around the governor’s historic neighborhood.
We had so much fun. The neighborhood was both beautiful and the people who lived there were kind.
Now to try to get these hyper kids to bed so we can get up early for the Nevada Day parade.
