Approximately 1,700 people hit the streets of downtown Reno last night dressed in their robes, onesies and other night wear for the 2016 Pajama Crawl, according to crawl organizer Heidi Adkins.
“It’s such a chilly night but surprisingly there are a ton of people downtown,” said Marina Lawler, a student at UNR. “All the different PJs are hilarious and there is nothing better than drinking with friends in your comfiest clothes.”
Sacramento native, Tejon Washington, began a contortionist routine to the delight of passersby while posing for a photo
“I’m a street performer,” he said. “Wherever I go, I just like to see people’s faces and reactions to me doing this.”
Washington has been dancing and performing for the past seven years in his hometown, and decided to come to Reno for a getaway with a friend for her 21st birthday.
“Reno is amazing,” Washington said. “I love all the lights and all of the movement … I like the fast paced lifestyle.”
Both Washington and his friend, 21-year-old Stevie Mudrow, were excited to hear about all the other crawls in Reno throughout the year.
“We will definitely be coming back for the Zombie Crawl,” Mudrow said.
