SnowFest!Katie Tyler, February 27, 2014 in Activities & Recreation
SnowFest! is a North Lake Tahoe annual Spring event that originated in 1982. It is an annual 10 day event that takes place all over North Lake Tahoe with over 100 activities for the whole family and even the family dog!
Start the weekend off with a BANG at Squaw Valley, Friday night all starting at 6:30pm. Gather around the KT Base Bar Deck and look up to the slopes for the Lazer show and fireworks display that will make your jaw drop!
Over the weekend, you don’t want to miss the Firefighter’s pancake breakfast, Tahoe City SnowFest! Parade, or Sunnyside’s annual luau. My favorite event is the Polar Bear swim in Lake Tahoe. If you’re feeling a little crazy or want to watch those who are, don’t miss the 25th Annual Polar Bear Swim at Garwoods in Carnelian bay on Saturday, March 1st. Participants will dive into Lake Tahoe (40 degree) and swim to the end of the Garwoods’ Pier and back for the chance of winning the cash prize… or just for the thrill. Come join the swimmers or just come have a Wet Woody (or hot coco) and be part of this lively event.
During the week the fun continues with events like the Hacienda margarita races, Pete ‘N Peter’s Bar Game Olympics and the always popular PINK Party, a benefit for breast cancer awareness, held this year at Lakeside Pizza in Tahoe City. Finish off the week on Sunday, March 9th with the last event, the Fine ‘N Funky Fashion Show at Hacienda at 8pm.
With snow in the sky and more in the forecast this week you will see North Tahoe come alive.
