Carson Valley Days

This weekend is Carson Valley Days, the Carson Valley’s big yearly celebration. Why they always schedule this and the Carson City Rendezvous on the same weekend every year is a mystery I’ll never be able to explain. But that’s just the way it is.

Carson Valley Days this year is a big one, it’s the 100th anniversary of the celebration.

A list of all the events follows, but make sure not to miss the carnival at Lampe Park or the parade down Hwy 395 Saturday morning. They’re putting on a BBQ Friday night at 6:00, launching hot air balloons at 7am Saturday, and there’s even going to be a fireworks show Friday night at 10:00! The schedule can be downloaded here.
