By Annie Sliman
Nevada Wild Fest is a five day state fair style event that supports The Lili Claire Foundation. It will feature a wide array of attractions including an all-star concert series, ziplines, midway games, family oriented carnival rides, two haunted houses (known as Blood Village), a kids interactive zone, a mechanical bull, food and merchandise vendors, exhibitions, bar, beer and wine gardens and Dock Dogs competitions.
Founded in 1998, The Lili Claire Foundation was born from Keith and Leslie Litt Resnick’s dream to honor the memory their infant daughter Lili Claire by helping to improve the lives of children living with neurogenetic birth conditions and creating services to support their families. Today, in partnership with some of the finest medical institutions in Reno and Las Vegas, the Lili Claire Family Resource Centers address the specials needs of children living with Williams Syndrome, Downs Syndrome, autism, fetal alcohol syndrome and other neurogenetic birth conditions.
