Every year the Burning Man festival is held in the desert in Northern Nevada, just around the same time that the onions are harvested at Peri & Sons Farms, Inc..

The story goes that Nevada became a state during the Civil War because the Union needed the silver from mines such as Virgina City (just east of Reno) although the truth has more to do with needed electoral votes than heavy metals.

The split between the urban Clark County ( Las Vegas) and the rest of the state to the north is exhibited through a number of ongoing rivalries such as in high school sporting events and music competitions. It is perhaps most obvious between the two universities: UNR in Reno (the "Wolf Pack", its colors are silver and blue) and UNLV in Las Vegas (the "Runnin' Rebels", its colors are red and silver.)
