Five events to check out: The last week we’ll write about Christmas this year


It’s a light week for Reno events, what with Christmas an all. For those seeking to squeeze in a little more holiday cheer, there are a handful of events happening including dueling holiday stage shows. Be sure to check with event organizers to confirm COVID-19 protocols and event details.

  1. The Holland Project has four Kid Craft Workshop Days this week which seem a little like putting your kids in vocational training to be Santa’s Elves. Whatever we need to do for the economic recovery, right? Each day the young’uns will complete two craft projects to take home. If you’re reading this, you’ve already missed Monday’s workshop and the Shrinky Dink ornaments (bummer), but you can still register for Tuesday’s, Wednesday’s or Thursday’s workshops.
  2. Holiday Dreams takes traditional holiday elements and adds high-tech touches like computer animation. It has been running throughout the month at Grand Sierra Resort’s Grand Theatre, and it continues through New Year’s Day. That should be plenty of time to get your dreams fulfilled.
  3. The Eldorado has a stage show too: Santa’s Christmas Wonderland. This one has “the highest kicking Chorus Girls” along with glitter, music and Santa, of course. The show runs through Dec. 26 when Santa presumably takes his chorus girls and heads back to the North Pole for some R&R until next holiday season. No mention of what Mrs. Claus is doing during all of this.
  4. There’s not a ton we can say about Christmas tree recycling aside from if you have a cut tree it makes sense. Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful has three locations to take your un-flocked, de-tinseled and ornament-free tree: Bartley Ranch Park, Reno Sports Complex or Shadow Mountain Sports Complex. Get details here.
  5. And finally, if Christmas day with your family has convinced you to climb far, far away from them, you’re in luck. North Peak Climbing & Fitness has a free climbing day on Dec 26.
