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 2018. 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 and Day. Learn where the eating is good at “New Year’s Eve Dining Around Reno and Sparks.”
