Tip Tuesday: Things to do in Reno: OCTOBER

One of our favorite seasons at The Elm Estate is finally here, Fall – and not just because of how beautiful the weddings are during this time! As the days get shorter and the leaves change colors, there are still plenty of things to do in Reno to keep you entertained on those days where it’s a little too chilly to be heading outside!

Dark Corner Haunted House
Every weekend in October

Let’s jump right into the scary stuff! This is a great weekend activity to get yourself in the Halloween spirit. Get your tickets for Reno’s premier haunted house here. You may or may not regret going!

The Great Italian Fest
October 8-9

If you loved the Rib Cook Off, and you’re looking for something a little more wholesome than haunted houses, then why not pop down to the Italian Fest. This year, they’ll be celebrating their 40th year of bringing delicious Italian food to the streets of Reno. There isn’t a ticket or entry fee required for this one and it will be fun for the whole family.
