Community – Thursday, June 28, 2018 – 3:01pm I Love Carson City
Fourth of July celebrations abound in the Carson City area. Fireworks can be found in Carson City, Virginia City, Reno, Sparks, and at both north and south shore of Lake Tahoe. There are several daytime events going on beginning this weekend, so grab the kids, your friends and family, and have a great Independence Day week!
Please be safe, have a designated driver or ride handy, and remember that this whole area is just a fire waiting to happen – fireworks of any type are illegal and completely ill-advised.
