Hawaiian fundraiser, Carson City Fair lead weekend activities
Those who are in Carson City this weekend have a chance to spend a day in Hawaii without leaving town — or at least they can catch some Hawaiian food and entertainment at the Carson Mall. The Carson City Fair is also in full swing as the community’s busy summer continues.
The Northern Nevada Hui Association’s island-themed fundraiser will be from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday at the Carson Mall.
The event will open with a car wash, offering $5 per wash or $10 for trucks and SUVs, until 1 p.m.
Lunch for $10 offers teriyaki chicken, rice, macaroni salad and a bottle of water.
The live entertainment will kick off at 11 a.m. with Lee Jones. Next to play is Namolokama, made up of Gill Thompson and Danny Baclayon, at 1 p.m.
The fundraiser benefits Carson City’s next Polynesian Festival.

NATIONAL NIGHT OUT
The Carson City Sheriff’s Office will host its 15th annual National Night Out event Tuesday to help bring law enforcement and the community together.
The event will have nearly 180 different organizations, businesses and agencies out at Mills Park to inform citizens of the different ways they can protect themselves and their community while having fun with it.
This year will feature demonstrations and activities from Tahoe-Douglas Bomb Squad, Department of Environmental Protection, a drunk driving simulator from Washoe Tribal and a mock crime scene from the Crime Lab.
A Dog Walker Watch Program will also be featured. This program is designed to inform dog walkers about what they can do to call in and report if they see a crime or observe something suspicious.
Since the start of National Night Out in Carson City 15 years ago, the Sheriff’s Department has seen a 12 percent decrease in juvenile crime rates. The event is free to the public and runs from 5 to 8 p.m. There will also be free hot dogs and beverages available, courtesy of Grocery Outlet and Orh LLC.
