Reno Trail Ride 3/20 ; Reno Expo 3/23-25

There is a lot happening in Reno next week....and glad that I get to be in town for it

Tuesday 3/20: "Mild to Wild" Trail Ride in the wilderness of Reno benefitting the BlueRibbon Coalition. Link to more information: http://lockettshows.com/offroad-expo-trailrides.htm

We had a blast last year... here is a quick video of the day:
"Mild to Wild" Reno Expo Blue Ribbon Coalition Trail Ride - YouTube



Friday 3/23 - Sunday 3/25: Reno Expo which consists of: Reno Off-Road & Motorsports Expo ~ Reno Outdoor Recreation Expo ~ Spring Home & Garden Show ~ Reno Pet Show and Pug Parade

Last year was the first time they combined all the events, and I will have to say it was pretty cool. The typical home show guy would come over into the off-road section and get fired up about some of the products that were available...but he would never have gone to a offroad show alone. And vise versa. The best for me was the pet show... there was even a MONKEY!!!


In addition to all the booths, there will be a lot of activities:
  • Team eXtreme Trials motorcycle riders
  • Bass Tubs of Oklahoma fishing demonstrations
  • Don Engebretson “The Renegade Gardener” presentations
  • Live Stingray Encounters
  • HotShot the Robot
  • country singers JS & The Tributes live on stage
  • a Pug Parade
    also
  • Silent Auction benefitting the BlueRibbon Coalition (Please let us know if you would like to donate products to help benefit. Does not have to be offroad related!)

This wound up to be a pretty fun event. Lots of local offroaders attended to just shoot the bull. There were things for all the family. Many split up. The guys stayng in the offroad section and the wives and kids heading for the gardening, pet and horse corrals.

I spent too much at the Blueribbon Coallition silent auction! Loved it!

Good collection of vehicles including several from Trent Fab....I can't even get ONE looking good!

Posted a lot of pictures from the show here: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?s...8153317&type=1

They set record attendance and sold out the show for the first time in a while.

The economy has hit the Reno area really hard... these shows used to be all separate and individually fill the convention center. Now they are having to combine them and isn't quite filling the whole thing. So...say what you will...but in the big scheme of the world Al Lockett is making it continue to work!






Reno Expo Spectators up by 20%
March 23-25, 2012 at Reno Sparks Convention Center
Reno Off-Road & Motorsports Expo ~ Reno Outdoor Recreation Expo
Spring Home & Garden Show ~ Reno Pet Show and Pug Parade


RENO, NV MARCH 28, 2012: The Reno Expo presented by Miller Lite consisting of the Reno Off-Road & Motorsports Expo, Reno Outdoor Recreation Expo, Spring Home & Garden Show and Reno Pet Show and Pug Parade had a 20% growth in attendance at this years show. “The economy has had quite a hit on the shows over the last few years and we are glad that combining the shows and adding all the features made it a huge success this year,” said event producer Al Lockett. “We would like to thank Miller Lite, Summit Racing, our host hotel Grand Sierra Resort and all the vendors, too numerous to mention, for their dedication to the success of this years show.”

The Reno Sparks Convention Center was thriving with hundreds of booths and family friendly entertainment including the Team eXtreme Trials motorcycle riders, Bass Tubs of Oklahoma fishing demonstrations, Don Engebretson “The Renegade Gardener”, Live Stingray Encounters, HotShot the Robot, Joseph Greco & Scott Killion’s country music tribute live on stage, the Pug Parade and a very successful Silent Auction benefitting the BlueRibbon Coalition.

The show ran for three days March 23, 24 and 25th with tickets as low as $8 with a coupon downloadable at http://lockettshows.com.

The Reno Motorsports Off-Road show had race trucks, motorcycles, ATV’s and trail ready jeeps and a Motorcycle Trials rider that took on a giant obstacle course demonstrating unbelievable precision and control on a motorcycle.

The Reno Outdoor Recreation Expo was packed with boats, RVs and products for both Summer and Winter adventures. Pro Bass fisherman Chuck Devereaux was demonstrating how to catch Bass at the Bass Tubs of Oklahoma display, a 5,000 gallon mobile aquarium.

The Spring Home and Garden Show gave homeowners in all stages of remodeling, landscaping and decorating options and opportunity to connect with local vendors. Award winning gardening and landscape design expert from HGTV, Don Engebretson “The Renegade Gardener” hosted three humorous and entertaining seminars a day.

The Reno Pet Show had all types of animals including horses, llamas, monkeys, reptiles and of course multiple breeds of dogs and cats in addition to items to pamper your pet. The very popular Pug Parade had over 50 pugs parading across the stage, congratulations to Mazie who won.

The Reno Expo is the largest multi-discipline consumer show event in Northern Nevada. Next year’s Reno Expo will take place April 5-6-7, 2013. Visit 2012 Reno Expo - YouTube for future events, updates and show discounts.
