Frights of Halloween 2020 in the Biggest Little City
Sydney Oliver and Seanna Simpson hit the streets of downtown Reno to find way fewer people than usual on Halloween, but some still in the spirit despite COVID-19 restrictions.
A Still Festive Halloween
From pirates to clowns to blown up dinosaurs, the streets of Reno were still festive for Halloween 2020. Families and friends walked the streets bearing masks, both scary and protective, enjoying a night out under a full moon, even as a surge of COVID-19 cases hit the area.
Nathan Hernandez sported a giant blow-up dinosaur suit seeking adventure with his family in his ‘endangered species that is already dead’ costume to make the best of the holiday.
“To be honest, I’m just trying to have some fun, I’m trying to get out of the house, and trying to spread some joy,” Hernandez said.
“Partying and Getting Weird” Like It’s 2020
“We are going to Cal-Neva and then going from there,” Logan Siri said, walking down Virginia Street wearing a ‘bloody guy’ costume. “We are partying and getting weird.”
One main attraction was at Dark Pursuit on Sierra St. which has a haunted maze with pitch-black hallways and sudden ghostly interactions.
“It is a giant maze, every time we do this it’s a different thing but right now it’s pitch black darkness,” De’Aundray Gooden, a dressed up employee said. “It takes about 10 to 15 minutes to finish. Some people do get lost so they do need some assistance. It’s terrifying but fun.”
