Big Truck Day 2017Shane Jones, October 20, 2017 in Activities and Recreation, Tahoe Favorites, Tahoe/Truckee
One of the things I love most about Truckee is the preservation of its rich history. The town has done an amazing job at keeping the downtown a relic of the past and passing local legends for generations. If you’ve yet to delve into Truckee’s Wild West roots, you are able to do it with a spooky twist at the Historical Haunted Tour Thursday October 19th through Saturday October 21st. During the walking tour, you will be guided to interesting sites where you will be immersed in engaging tales of the old days performed by Truckee’s infamous characters of the past. This entertaining evening benefits the Trails and Vistas nonprofit. The tickets sell fast, and are nearly sold out. If you can’t find tickets this year, be sure to mark your calendars for 2018.
Another benefit to living in such an amazing town is the abundance of community events that bring the entire family together. One of my favorites to take my boys to is Big Truck Day this Saturday October 21st from 11am to 2pm at the Town Corporation Yard on Stockrest Springs Road. If you’ve got a little one that’s into fire trucks, tractors, police cars, helicopters, or any other mode of transportation, bring them by for this awesome experience! Kids are able to get in and explore all of the trucks and equipment on display. My boys’ personal favorites are the fire trucks…I prefer the snow cats. This is a free event and open to all ages. Hope to see you there!
