If you are looking for recreational activities this spring and summer, check out the 2018 spring / summer version of the Reno Parks and Recreation Guide and/or the 2018 spring / summer Sparks Recreation Activity Guide. There is literally something for everyone, from little kids to those with disabilities to the senior citizen set. Things to participate in range from just enjoying Reno’s public art to full-on athletic activities.

The City of Reno Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department publishes this parks and recreation guide featuring information about recreational programs and activities available to the community. Two guides per year are published and provided free of charge – winter/spring and for summer/fall.

The Sparks Parks and Recreation Department version is called their activity guide. It is published on approximately the same schedule as Reno’s.

The wild west family fun and pageantry of the annual Reno Rodeo comes to the Reno-Sparks Livestock Events Center from Thursday, June 14 through Saturday, June 23, 2018.

The Reno Rodeo is a nationally recognized PRCA (Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association) event. In addition to nightly rodeo performances, families and kids will enjoy numerous other activities associated with the Reno Rodeo, including special shows in the outdoor arena, a shopping area for food, drink, and western goods, a big carnival on the midway, kids’ rodeo, and the Reno Rodeo Parade in downtown Reno on Saturday, June 16.

The Reno-Sparks Livestock Events Center is located at 1350 N. Wells Avenue in Reno. Daily parking on the grounds is $10. Reno Rodeo tickets can be purchased the day of the event at the rodeo grounds, online, or by calling 800-325-7328. Tickets on the day of the event are $3 more than if you buy them in advance and you don’t get any of the available discounts.

Nevada’s 2018 Primary Election Day is Tuesday, June 12. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Voters will get to choose their preferred candidates from among a large field vying for their attention with a variety of promises and attacks on opponents. Despite all the dissension, voting is still the best way we have for participating in decisions that affect everyone.

If you did not take advantage of early voting or submit an absentee ballot, Primary Election Day 2018 is your last chance to have a say in who appears in the General Election on November 6, 2018. If you aren’t registered to vote, you will have no say in the election, which is not a good thing. Learn about voter registration deadlines and other important election information from “2018 General Election in Washoe County and Nevada.”

Before heading to the polls, you can check your voter registration status through the Washoe County Registrar of Voters.
