Carson City Rendevous June 10, 2012

                                        The three canons at the Mountain Man Encampment

The Rendezvous takes place every year in the State Capital of Caron City, Nevada. It is a celebration of Nevada's history. Over the course of three days a visitor can listen to live music, see booths with many different crafts and watch live reenactments. The reenactments take place at the Mountain Man Encampment,  Native American Encampment and Civil War Encampment. At the Mountain Man Encampment demonstrations with muskets and canons occur throughout the day. In the Native American Encampment viewers watch traditional dances by Paiute Indians. Finally, three times during the day a mock Civil War battle between Union and Confederate troops takes place on the Big Field.  The Rendezvous is fun for the whole family and best of all if you don't buy food or crafts it is free.
