Things 2 Do This Weekend!

Posted: Updated:

It's a comedy and animal lover's kind of weekend in Northern Nevada. For starters Sheep Dip is celebrating its 50th run on stage at John Ascuaga's Nugget in Sparks. You'll find real live livestock at Lawlor with the Professional Bull Riders tour and while they'll be on-screen, it's a cat-fan's festival at the Knitting Factory Saturday with an Internet Cat Film Festival.

But there's also a fundraiser for a new Senior Center in Douglas County, a Disc Golf Tournament in Reno and a chance to ski with a Ranger at Heavenly. Enjoy!
