HAUNTOBER – FRIGHT NIGHT – GHOST WALK – INVESTIGATION

VIRGINIA CITY, NEVADA

This is it!  It’s the night of fright you’ve been anticipating.  It all comes together for one entertaining evening at Piper’s Opera House, when Cordillera International Film Festival hosts Fright Night!  This reportedly haunted venue is the perfect spooky spot to enjoy a bag of popcorn, a goblet of vino and some super creepy short films.  Looking for a more hair-raising experience?  Perhaps a ghost walk and investigation of six epic locations in Virginia City gets you excited.  Small groups of 5-8 will be led through the night until sun-up.  Visit ParanormalNV.com for more details and tickets.

SLAUGHTERHOUSE
THURSDAY-SATURDAY, OCTOBER 31-NOVEMBER 3
GREATER NEVADA FIELD

Not indented for the faint of heart or those with a full bladder, Slaughterhouse, AKA Fright Fest,mayrequire a change of clothing at the end of it all. The ghastly characters within the catacombs of Greater Nevada Field are guaranteed to induce panic and perhaps a scream or two.  For younger visitors, or those wishing not to soil themselves, Fright Fest also offers a Laughter House attraction, suitable for all ages.  Learn more about both venues at RenoFrightFest.com.

WARREN MILLER’S PRESENTS “TIMELESS”
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 1 (6:30-10 pm)
RENO BALLROOM

Snow-riding lovers exuberantly gather at film showings around our beautiful planet for Warren Miller’s exciting 70th production, “Timeless.”  Indeed, Warren Miller’s recognizable voice first permeated the sound waves and narrated the first film, “Deep and Light” back in 1950.  Though the epic voice of the late Warren Miller no longer narrates these heart-pumping snow movies, his spirit lives on through every fearless athlete who graces the screen today.  Fresh cuts through pow pow, steep descents ripping gnarly chutes and jagged cliffs, exotic back country locations and the world’s finest resort destinations. Warren Miller Productions has it all!  For tickets to enjoy “Timeless” at the Reno Ballroom Friday night, visit EventBrite.com.

GRAMATIK-RE:COIL TOUR PT. II
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 2 (7 pm)
WHITNEY PEAK HOTEL – CARGO CONCERT HALL

Hip hop, electronica, trip hop…  I’m familiar with the first, but had limited knowledge of exactly what the second and third really are.  Have a listen to “Future Crypo” to get a solid example of what Slovenian music producer Denis Jašarević, better known as Gramatik,puts into the universe. It’s a great vibe to get up and groove to.  The concert is 18+ with valid ID at the door.  Purchase admission tickets at EventBrite.com.

MIJARES
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 3 (8 am)

GRAND SIERRA RESORT – GRAND THEATRE

The magic of Latin pop star Manuel Mijares fills GSR’s Grand Theatre, one beautifully-belted ballad at a time. The international sensation from Mexico City started signing in his elementary school choir, then debuted professionally at a local festival at the age of 23.  A few years later, he joined Latin pop star Emmanuel and launched his solo career with the release of his first recorded hit song, ““No Se Murió el Amor.” The rest is history, and Mijares now has over 1 dozen solo studio albums and ten compilations.  Get swept off your feet this Sunday at the GRS by purchasing tickets at GrandSierraResort.com.
