Nevada State Fair Opens Today

By Linda Tancs

The Reno-Sparks Livestock Events Center hosts the Nevada State Fair today through 29 August.  Admission is free on opening night; the grand procession begins at 7 p.m.  As is the case with any state fair, the event will highlight the usual livestock shows, auctions, agricultural events, and exhibits, as well as carnival rides and live entertainment.  However, in this and future years Nevada’s long and storied Wild West history will be featured during the annual attraction.  That means you can expect to experience a mining camp, a frontier town, a Native American village, stage coach rides, and a host of other features defining the State’s history.  That’s a lot to see in one day, so why not buy a 3-day passport and save $45!
