Originally created in 1986 to fill a gap in the tourist market during the month of August in Reno, Hot August Nights has gone on to become the world’s largest classic car convention. Beginning in Lake Tahoe on the first weekend in August each year, Hot August Nights moves to Reno/Sparks for just under a week of classic cars, rock n’ roll and 50’s nostalgia.
If you’re joining the convention at nearby Lake Tahoe, why not bring your own classic car along to take part, or stay in one of the resort hotels offering special deals to spectators of the show. From the Lakeside Inn and Casino to Harvey’s Lake Tahoe, discounted rates mean you can afford to really enjoy your trip to the area.
Car judging, show-n-shines and a variety of stalls selling everything from 50’s inspired jewelry to records and hot dogs, attract crowds looking to relive the era, so make sure you bring enough cash with you to enjoy the experience! Cash advance loans in Reno are available from lenders who will bridge the gap until your next payday, if funds are running low. Provided you live in the local area and have regular income, there’s no reason why your application won’t be accepted, and you could have extra cash to enjoy the convention without worrying about money. With a Cash advance Reno loan, you could even splash out and treat your partner to a 1950’s style dress from one of the stalls for a great way to celebrate in style!
The Reno Show
Booking accommodation for the Reno event is best done early as rooms begin to fill up for the following year almost as soon as this year’s show finishes! Plenty of hotels and motels in the area offer discounted rates if you let them know you’re attending Hot August Nights, and you could stay in one of the luxurious casino resorts for less than you expected. With weather in Reno typically in the 90’s during the month of August, make sure to pack sunscreen and suitable clothing. If you want to take part in the activities with your car, you need to register in advance to ensure you get a place. With drag racing and burnouts taking place in Reno during the show, it’s a great opportunity to show off your classic wheels and meet some like-minded people!
The Swap Meet
Every year the Collector Vehicle Swap Meet and Nostalgia Fair is held in Reno, with automotive parts from the pre-1976 era and nostalgia for sale – more than 700 vendors turn up annually for the event. As well as car parts, classic vehicles are usually on sale, and last year more than 400 were on show in the outdoor car corral.
For some rockabilly fun, Hot August Nights in Reno is a great choice for all the family; make sure you organize your accommodation in advance and have a great time!
