Reno Tahoe goes all out when it comes to being festive. Even Mother Nature does her part. Yesterday, there was more pink around town than usual… from the sunset, to a hotel, to the color of leaves. Here are a few unscientific theories to explain the rise of pink in Reno Tahoe.
- October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The Grand Sierra Resort & Casino has turned their hotel pink, with a Pink Ribbon monogrammed on the side. (Okay, so that endorsement is pretty obvious.) Way to show your support!
- Today is October 3rd, Mean Girls Day. It could be believed that in honor of this special day, Mother Nature pronounced her love for the movie early by turning our sky brilliant pink last night, in addition to the fall leaves. Afterall, it was Wednesday… and as ordered by Plastics member Karen Smith, “On Wednesdays, we wear pink.”
- The reflection from the lights on the Reno Arch and sunset turned the World’s Largest Climbing Wall, you guessed it, pink. If the climbing could talk, it could argue that it is “tough enough to wear pink.” Legit? Climb it and find out!
Now for the evidence from our trusty Instagram fans…
