The Eldorado’s Great Reno Italian Festival returned this year for its 37th year. The outdoor festival celebrates Italian culture and traditions as downtown Reno transforms into its own Little Italy. Free live entertainment, pasta, drinks, and tons of vendors come out for the weekend. The grape stomp remains a festival highlight. Check out the photos of this year’s event.
Ty O’Neil is a lifelong student of anthropology with two degrees in the arts. He is far more at home in the tear gas filled streets of war torn countries than he is relaxing at home. He has found a place at This Is Reno as a photojournalist. He hopes to someday be a conflict photojournalist covering wars and natural disasters abroad.
