Just as summer is reaching its peak, Hot August Nights roll into Tahoe, CA and Reno, NV. Much like Sturgis, the event is spread out over an entire week, starting in Tahoe and finishing up across the border. True to its name, most of the events are held in the evenings after the sweltering summer heat has somewhat dissipated, which makes this less of a kid-friendly event than other car shows.
