Halloween Is Nevada Day
If you’ve been around these parts long enough, you know Halloween is Nevada Day. Both are on October 31st.
When we were young, Nevada Day and the parade were celebrated on the 31st in Carson City. You could go trick or treating around Carson the night before. Then go to the parade the next day, with your candy to snack on.
And if you and the parents were up to it, go trick or treating again in the areas surrounding Carson City on Halloween night.
Although it’s done a little bit differently now, we still get into the Spirit of Halloween and show our Nevada Spirit this holiday weekend.
Since the weather started to turn cold, Tahoe again is offering free firewood from our fence scraps. It’s to help those out that need it.
We have bins/cages outside our yard to collect wood from. It’s on a 1st come basis. However, we will fill or change out the bins as needed, and as long as we have wood scraps. We just ask that you clean up the area after collecting your firewood and please leave our wood bins/cages.
Enjoy your Nevada Day Weekend, the parade, and Halloween.
