On New Year’s Eve, there will be no problem finding places to celebrate and bring in 2019 in the Reno / Lake Tahoe area.

New Year’s Eve will feature numerous big parties in Reno and Sparks, in the casinos, nightclubs and just about every other nightlife establishment. Downtown Reno will feature a midnight fireworks show to bring in 2019. I’ve seen this before and it’s a spectacular display. It’s also fun to get down with all the people around the Reno Arch and cheer for a better year to come. Count on it being chilly and be sure to dress for a cold temperatures.

Up at Lake Tahoe, several of the ski resorts will be putting on parties and other events to celebrate the New Year. For example, Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe will be having fireworks and a torchlight parade to bring in the New Year. The weather will be similar to the Reno area, possibly even colder. Brrrr! You can also party in the New Year at South Lake Tahoe casinos.

All that celebrating is sure to stimulate an appetite. When you get hungry, there are several choices to where to dine on New Year’s Eve. Learn where the eating is good at “New Year’s Eve Dining Around Reno and Sparks.”

If you are new to Reno, you may have yet to experience the full range of weather conditions we can get in the Truckee Meadows and nearby areas. It can literally go from mild to wild in a short period of time, and it varies quite a bit from year to year.

The City of Reno has plans in place to deal with rainy and snowy weather, as does Washoe County and the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT). While these precautions aren’t always needed, it is important for residents to know what to expect when the snow flies and roads get wet and slick from stormy weather.

It is worth noting that the City of Reno, City of Sparks, and Washoe County have in place an interlocal agreement to assist each other as needed when there is a declared snow emergency. When it really gets bad, everyone will work together in the interest of public safety throughout the Truckee Meadows.
