Biggest Little Birthday Bash!

The Biggest Little City had the biggest little birthday party today and everyone in town was invited. And the theme was living history.
To bring history to life they had representatives of various time periods in town posted at historical buildings and sites offering information and re-enacting historical events.

While its been 111 years  since the city officials incorporated the city started forming right along the Truckee river 35 years before that.

Garrett Barmore is a longtime Reno-ite who helped organize the event.

"In 1868 on May 9th there was an auction and that is what started Reno," Barmore said. "And if people want to learn more about the history of the city they can use an app that you can download for free and it will tell you about specific buildings and sites."

You can find that app at  Reno.gov/NV150.
