Bacardi Girls Storm Reno

Wolf Berry Girls

Wolf Berry Girls

Over the Independence Day weekend Reno hosts the All-American Barbecue Festival and the Firecracker 500 off road race.  Bacardi showed up with a bus load of pretty girls decked out in mini dresses and shorts  to promote their rum.  Girls wearing hoods were promoting Wolfberry flavored rum.  Some of the girls are models, others college students earning money to get through school.  One told me she got three full days of work out of the festival.  Pretty girls giving out free shots of rum is a great combination.

Hermann Park Kite Festival

Giant Fish Kite

Giant Fish Kite

This inaugural kite festival was held in conjunction with Hermann Park’s centennial.  The giant fish kite does not fly well on its own, so it was assisted by the more efficient rainbow colored kite behind it.

Haute Wheels 2014

Cooking Demo

Start with a big parking lot, add a bunch of award winning food trucks, craft beer, Texas skies and you have Haute Wheels. This year’s festival added a small Via Colori to the mix. It was 86F and humid on this first weekend of Spring.
