About Come in from the Cold Family Entertainment Series
When it's freezing outside and the budget has taken a holiday beating, free family entertainment sounds pretty good, and the Come in from the Cold Family Entertainment Series could be just what you're looking for. These concerts will feature some of the best performers in the Reno / Tahoe area, all of whom have donated their time. There are no tickets to buy, but a $3 per person donation is requested to help support this and future park programs.
The 2013 series runs on Saturday evenings from January 5 through March 9. All shows are at the Bartley Ranch Regional Park Western Heritage Interpretive Center, 6000 Bartley Ranch Road in south Reno. Doors open at 5 p.m. and shows start at 7 p.m. Seating is limited to 280 people and there are no reservations. For more information, call (775) 828-6612 or (775) 823-6500.
