All American Barbecue Festival
Over the Independence Day weekend Reno holds the All-American Barbecue Festival in conjunction with the Firecracker 500 off road race. A booth serving up very tasty BBQ was run by the Silver Legacy Hotel. I highly recommend it 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 very nice in the afternoons when the sun slipped behind the Silver Legacy and Eldorado buildings.
