Staff report

This Hot August Nights, The Summit Sierra is the place to be in south Reno. The shopping center is an official host of Hot August Nights with a full line-up of activities beginning Wednesday through Aug. 11.

As the popularity of Hot August Nights continues to increase each year, so does the waiting list to be an official participant in the annual event. The Summit is pleased to announce that more than 100 of the cars on display will be “unregistered,” which allows locals and visitors on the Hot August Nights waiting list a place to show their car and participate in Hot August Nights this year – several are first-time participants.

In addition to an array of free events and activities, the Summit is also offering a chance to win a $500 Summit gift card. Visitors can register to win before Aug. 9 at the following locations: Levi’s, Orvis, Starbucks and Tin Star.
