Nevada Haunts NYC with a Quirky Visit to The Big Apple

Reporting by ElizaBeth Taylor and Ileana Exaras

Some Halloween history came to The Big Apple this week. A ghoulish cowboy waltzing with a lady in red, a mysterious alien spectator, and a piano playing miner straight from ghost town may seem like things from a scene in a Broadway show, but they were all on hand for holiday fun last night.

It might be Halloween in Nevada all year long, but October 31st also marks the state’s founding dating back to 1864. That’s why Travel Nevada hosted a frightfully delightful ball on Tuesday at the Alger House. “Telling stories about creepy, and weird, and quirky, and haunted is just really authentic to the state, its something that not a lot of other destinations can do,” said Heather Sheppard from Fahlgren Mortine.

The floor plan allowed for an immersive introduction to Nevada’s curiosities from a Basque- inspired dinner, to a vintage photo booth, and a hanging UFO.  Guests mingled with partner representatives to explore Nevada’s many towns, nature, and sights.

“I think that there’s that neat little niche from that high dessert to the high mountains. You can have pine trees up to sagebrush but its everything in between, it’s the people, its the culture, its how we’re a little bit different,” said Ronele M. Dotson, from RAD Strategies.

With its historic saloons, craft breweries, haunted artist studios, natural sites, and its emerging tech scene, Nevada offers an authentic experience to everyone, from the mountain hiker, to the interested historian, to the intrepid influencer. According to Travel Nevada’s Chris Moran, “You can be free, you can be yourself, maybe let go a little bit in our state.”

Nevada invites you to live on the edge.

Partners at the event were Reno Tahoe, Reno Tahoe Territory, Carson City Camp Las Vegas, The Vox Agency, and Ambros Banana Whiskey.
