Snowfest! February 28-March 9th   Leave a comment

Here we go again. It’s time for Snowfest! North Tahoe and Truckee’s Winter Carnival. Ten days of races, parades, strange and bizarre events, and lots of chances to eat, drink and be merry.

This year the theme is “Bring back the 80s.” So head up to the attic and find that bright 80s ski gear and get ready to party. Everyone has their favorite Snowfest event they can’t wait to get back to year after year, and then of course it is fun to try something new and different as well.

The Old Favorites-

Begin your week by heading to Squaw Valley for the Torchlight Parade, Laser Light Show, Fireworks and Snowfest Queen Coronation on February 28th. Then don’t miss our home town funky parades in Tahoe City on March 1st and Kings Beach on March 8th. While sometimes it seems like there are more kids in the parade then watching it, that’s what makes it fun. After the Tahoe City Parade head on over to Garwoods to watch a large contingent of fools jump in Lake Tahoe and swim way too far out as part of the Polar Bear Swim.

Then of course, if you get hungry you could hit the Sunnyside Luau on March 2nd  for some delicious Hawaiian style fare,  or get something that sticks to your ribs at The Bridgetender Rib Fest on March 7th.

Something New and Different

How about trying Granlibakken’s Gone Bonkers Kids Ski Race on March 2nd? There’s a course full of bumps and obstacles to make it interesting and fun for the little ones.

Or how about the Tahoe Mountain Man contest?  Here is your chance to show off your skills at snow shoveling, climbing over berms and putting on chains.

After all that Mountain Man stuff it’s time for some pizza. Head off to Zano’s in Truckee for the Godfather Pizza Eating Challenge. Can you eat a four pound pizza all by yourself? Now is your chance to find out.

These are just a few of the fun things to become a part of over the next ten days. Go to www.tahoesnowfestival.com to check out the full calender of events.
