New Year's Eve Preparations In Reno

Posted: Updated:

There is always plenty to do on New Year's Eve, and there are going to be thousands hitting the streets of downtown Reno.

Campo had only been open a few weeks when New Year's Eve rolled around last year. To ring in 2013 though, they're expecting big crowds for its New Year's Eve meal and champagne toast.

"It's very festive," says Campo's general manager Giancarlo Pellegrino. "Especially this year, downtown is fully booked. Everyone is here to have a great new year."

On Sunday afternoon, workers were still preparing for the feast.

"She was cutting up some brioche, which is going to be part of the dessert part of the dessert menu," says Pellegrino.

Locals are also gearing up for the celebrations, whether it's an evening downtown or something low-key.

"As a rule, we try to avoid downtown because it's a little too busy for us," says Barbie Marcoe. "We kind of like the little bit more quiet."

And, as most of us know, downtown is bustling on New Year's Eve. We found some families from the Sacramento area here to join in on the fun.

"We came up a couple days ago, did a day of skiing and now we're just checking out Reno," says Tammie McKenna.

One of the biggest draws for many New Year's Eve revelers is the downtown fireworks display.

"I myself have actually never liked the sound of it, but I really think they're cool, the way how you can get them to go in different shapes and patterns," says 11-year-old Collin McKenna.

The casinos are booked up with people ready to ring in the new year with a little gambling.

"We enjoy it here," says Vernon Smith, visiting from Canada. "The casinos are closer together than Vegas."
