If you can’t find something interesting to do this weekend (June 12 – 14, 2015), you aren’t trying very hard. There are an amazing number of events and activities crowded into just a few days, which means you may have to pick and choose if you want to check out more than one thing. There are lots of details in my “June 2015 Events and Activities in the Reno Region” article. Here is a sampling to get you started…
