Discover Burien announced Thursday (Aug. 5th) that they’re being forced to change the name of this weekend’s “Hot August Nights” to “Burien’s Sizzling Saturday Night Car Show” due to pressure from an identically-named event in Reno, Nevada.

The newly-renamed event will still take place this Saturday, Aug. 7th from 4pm – 10pm at Burien Town Square, and will still feature classic cars, live rock n’roll and much more.

Discover Burien (and numerous lawyers from Nevada) wants everyone to know that this event is not in any way affiliated with or connected to Hot August Nights™ held in Reno every year.

Here’s the official statement from Discover Burien:


BURIEN, WA, AUGUS 5, 2010: Effective immediately Discover Burien has changed the name of Saturday’s community event to “Burien’s Sizzling Saturday Night Car Show. Formerly called “Hot August Nights”, the event is not in any way affiliated with or connected to the Hot August Nights™ event held in Reno, NV.

Burien’s Sizzling Saturday Night Car Show will take place this Saturday, August 7, from 4:00pm to 10:00pm and be held downtown at Burien Town Square. We will feature classic cars and live music.

“It will be a great event for the whole family. I’m bringing my wife and two kids – so come on down and enjoy the festivities with us!” says Steve Gilbert, Discover Burien executive director.

“Take a day to discover all of the great things Burien has to offer – shopping, dining, relaxing and these great events. Burien is open on weekends.” Gilbert said.

Burien’s Sizzling Saturday Night Car Show will also include a beer garden, 50/50 raffle and a multitude of magnificent machines, mostly from the ‘50s and ‘60s. After the event, classic cars will take a night cruise through Three Tree Point and Normandy Park.

    I find it just stupidly SAD that just because it has the same name as an event IN A DIFFERENT STATE, they were forced to change it. Geeze….

    Ok, off my soapbox.
