Over the Independence Day weekend Reno had the All-American Barbecue Festival held in conjunction with the Firecracker 500 off road race. This set contains informal portraits and two performers. The Silver Legacy hotel and casino had a booth that served up very tasty BBQ. I highly recommend the hotel if you are planning a stay in Reno. The high plains of Northern Nevada are special with lots of sunshine, moderate afternoon high temperatures, cool evenings and low humidity. It was beautiful in the afternoons when the sun slipped behind the Silver Legacy and Eldorado buildings.
