Temperatures are rising as events season continues going strong. This week marks the return of the Reno Rodeo, festivals, live music and our favorite event scheduled this coming weekend: The Reno Big Wheel Races. It’s a benefit for the Newton Learning Center, which helps students with disabilities. You can race big wheels for a good cause, and mayhem may occur. We think that’s rad.
