Hot August Nights
Hot August Nights is the biggest Reno and Sparks event of the year. It's a celebration of everything to do with classic cars, vintage rock 'n roll, and the American era of the 50s and 60s when cruising, sock hops, and high school proms were all the rage. Hot August Nights is a party that takes over the town during its run. A warm-up for Hot August Nights, at South Lake Tahoe, will be July 25 and 26. The South Shore will share the Hot August Nights event with free entertainment, show-n-shines, cruises, vendors, and more.
