All week we’ve been showing people ways to keep themselves and their homes cool.

A good way to cool off is a nice hop in the Truckee River, something a lot of people did all day Friday.

“It’s hot out today,” says Takiya Smith, visiting from Hawaii. “Like, ‘Oh my God’ hot. And I didn’t know that it got this warm here. And so the water, it feels great.”

Record-breaking temperatures are tough to handle if you’re stuck without air conditioning. Parents, kids and the family pets all hopped into the water.

The Truckee River may be chilly, but folks say it feels pretty refreshing with the sun beating down.

“It’s icy cold, but when you get out, you feel much better and it’s very relaxing, and it’s nice to be out here with all the kids and it’s a beautiful place,” says Chandra Peckham.

With temperatures set to hit triple digits this weekend, you can expect Wingfield Park to be packed on Saturday and Sunday.

Never Did See One Kite in the Air

Kite Festival Italian Ices

Kite Festival Italian Ices

Italian Ice Testimonial Received Sun, Jun 2, 2013 at 10:54 AM

Just wanted to share a look into our first $1,500 day. It was a Kite
Festival held here in Reno annually.
Their 4th, our 1st.

Turnout last year was about 3,500 but don’t have the numbers for this
year yet. It was about 80 degrees that day and I brought 350 bottles of
water as well, but due to line like shown in the picture, I didn’t even have
time to get them out of the van. Next to us was CocaCola with 240 btls
of water and they sold out by 2 pm.

The line shown in the pic was indicative of my non stop serving from 10:15
(for a 11 am start) until 3:50 when I finally stood up straight. Never did see
one kite in the air.

Last year we booked 11 events and this year we have 64 lined up through
October 15th.

Love Little Jimmy’s Italian Ices.
