RENO, Nev. ( & KRNV) -- Classic cars have started to head back home now that the 28th annual Hot August Nights has come to an end.

Every year, this event draws in thousands of people to the Reno area to watch classic cars cruise through town. This year, Hot August Night's Executive Director, Tony Marini, could not have been happier with the turnout.

In its 28th year, Hot August Nights brought back some tried-and-true traditions, and experimented with new events.

"We had some of the greatest cars in the world show up for the Barrett-Jackson cup. . . we tried autocross this year -- huge success. Going to expand on that!" Marini said.

Another part of the event is about giving back to children. The Hot August Nights Foundation will be holding a raffle for a donated 1972 Corvette Stingray T-top until November. 

Raffles will be held at other area events, like the rib cook-off, Oktober Fest and the Reno Air Races. The money raised in the raffle will benefit the Truckee Meadows Boys and Girls Club, O'Brien Middle School, and Washoe Inspire Academy.

Well having to deal with all the street closures, extra gas, time and money you can stay gone as far as I see it. Sure the City and casino's make money, but what about the regular folk? We don't see anything other than hassle out of it.Street vendors come and make loads of money, then poof, they disappear and take the money with them.
