Thanksgiving is Grand

Posted by Alex D'Antonio on Nov 17, 2016 11:54:18 AM

If you’re visiting Grand Sierra Resort for Thanksgiving, get ready for a holiday you’ll be thankful for! We’ve got turkeys on tap, potatoes being mashed, countless pies to conquer your cravings, and too many fun activities to count. Join us as we cook, carve, and celebrate this upcoming Thursday.

Wobble Before You Gobble

Before the festivities begin, kick off your Thanksgiving morning with a 5K/10K, family friendly race – you’ll feel less guilty taking that second slice of pecan pie, trust us ☺️. Runners, walkers, kids, and wobblers can taxi to City Plaza or take the RTC bus route 12 from Grand Sierra Resort. The race begins at 9AM and takes participants down the Reno river path through Idlewild Park before heading back to the finish line. And don’t forget your swag! All wobblers receive a grab bag including a finisher's medal, "Wobble Gobble" trucker hat, Nature's Bakery fig bars, and free downloadable race photos! Registration fees start at $35.


Pumpkin Pie Giveaway

In the spirit of the holiday season, and to show just how grateful we are for our Club Grand members, we’re gifting our guest’s FREE pies to all qualified members. And claiming your pie is easy! Swipe your card at a promotional kiosk on November 23rd between 1PM and 8PM and print your pie voucher. Don’t see yours available? Play for pie by earning 300 points using your Club Grand card beginning at 4:00am through 7:00pm on Wednesday, November 23rd. Enjoy!
