It’s a Go! The Fireworks that is…..

Most of us in South Lake Tahoe breathed a collective sigh of relief recently when it was announced that the Lake Tahoe Visitors Association was able to negotiate a settlement of a potential lawsuit that would have put an end to our glorious fireworks display on the Fourth of July, and Labor Day holidays, this year and for all years to come.

Our annual fireworks displays have long been a tradition for many families to celebrate our country and the opening and closing of the summer season up here. The Local residents who brought about the suit, witnessed lack of a system of adequate clean up of the debris from the firework displays. They felt this default presented a serious danger to the health and clarity of the Lake. While no one in this community wants to participate in any activity that would present a serious threat to the health of our lake, we did not want to see this tradition we all enjoy on so many levels come to and end. LTVA worked hard to come to a resolution of all these issues, and we can once again look forward to these spectacular displays and holiday celebrations.

The Lake Tahoe Visitors Association is actually a great resource for information about many aspects of what is happening in South Lake Tahoe. They help to sponsor and promote many of the annual events that we enjoy in this community. Did you know that there is a direct link to their very informative website this, owner website? If you just click on the link under the Heading “Lake Tahoe Links,” Local Area Attractions it will take you right to their site

On the “Tahoe South” website you will find all the details for all the fun and interesting events coming up this spring and summer in South Lake Tahoe. Some upcoming events are the Cowboy Poetry Festival in Genoa on May 4 and 5th and at the end of this month the Valhalla Renaissance Fair. This summer there will be lots of fun music available at the Harrah’s Outdoor amphitheater including Bruno Mars, Journey/Steve Miller Band, The Eagles and Lady Gaga. You can enter the dates of your next visit to Tahoe and get a detailed list of events and activities taking place in town while you will be here.

We hope to see you soon!

The Leaves Are Changing Color…

The days here in Tahoe are starting to cool down a bit and everyone is getting ready for the fall season with their warm jackets and scarves. Cooler weather in Tahoe never stop us in Tahoe from having fun though…. There’s a lot going on here to celebrate this wonderful season.

This weekend starts with the Lake Tahoe Marathon and Triathlon. You can participate in or watch the events of biking, swimming, kayaking, and of course running. Elena, who works in our administration office, will be participating in the running marathon. She has been running in this marathon for about 7 years and is about to run 13.1 miles this year! Go Elena! For more info go to:

The Kokanee Salmon Run at Taylor Creek is a fantastic event to enjoy this time of year. The salmon are spawning and there are hundreds of them swimming up the creek in a variety of colors. Walking through the trail with nature all around you and the leaves on the trees changing color is just an amazing feeling. You might even see a bear feeding on the salmon, if you’re lucky! This is a place you must go to, even if you have been there before!
