What better way to spend a leisurely Saturday summer day than to stroll the sumptuously lovely gardens of the area. This year Lake of the Sky Garden Club invites you to discover some of the North Shore’s finest hidden gardens.  They will be holding their 28th annual garden tour on Saturday, July 30, 2016, from 10 am to 4 pm.

View creative landscapes throughout the area, or just get inspired to add to your own garden. A self guided tour, the best way to experience the garden tour is to grab a bunch of your friends and carpool to the various sites. Stop for lunch along the way at one of North Lake Tahoe’s various fine restaurants, many featuring outdoor seating along the lake.

May you all have a safe and fun filled 4th of July.  Area beaches such as Tahoe City, Incline Village and Donner Lake will be holding their annual celebrations tonight. There will be a free concert in Incline Village for the holiday.

Be sure to bring a flashlight if you are walking home, and please remember to remove your trash from our beautiful mountain environment. Drive safe, and be patient. Holidays always bring a huge influx to our small community’s roads, so allow for extra time while trying to get around. Be careful with fire, as we are still considered to be under drought conditions, with the American River Canyon fire being fought as I write this.

Have a wonderful time. For more events in the area and fun things to do and see, please visit Tahoe Weekly Magazine’s Event Calendar: thetahoeweekly.com

2016 Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival   Leave a comment

It’s time for the Bard on the Beach during Lake Tahoe’s annual Shakespeare at Sand Harbor event. Long time locals as well as visitors look forward to this every year for an evening of thespian delights overlooking one of Lake Tahoe’s most scenic beaches.

This year’s event hosts two plays, Shakespeare’s ‘Comedy of Errors’ and the jukebox musical ‘Forever Plaid’.

The productions almost always have an interesting twist, with performances, sets and costumes placed in settings and times other than the medieval. Even though you may have seen a particular Shakespearean play before, you are guaranteed to never have seen it quite like this.

In addition, every Monday hosts a variety of other performances under the stars. Broadway on the Beach sadly has already sold out, but there are still tickets for other performances, including the Sierra Nevada Ballet’s performance of Cinderella, the Reno Jazz Orchestra, Ann Hampton Callaway, a performance with the Reno Philharmonic of Ol’ Blue Eyes on the Beach and a Trails and Vistas World Concert.

The Monday night performances have become some of my favorites. The ballets are always lovely and with the lake as background, it always adds a touch of ethereal beauty to the performance.

Last year we were treated to an evening of The Beatles on the Beach with the Classical Mystery Tour, and I have to say, everyone had a blast. Not only was the music wonderful, but the musicians were as close to plausibly seeing the Beatles during their heyday as one is likely to get. By the end of the evening the crowd went wild, and there is nothing quite like seeing everyone from age 7 to 70 in a semi mosh pit in the front and singing along. The entire evening was a complete hoot and I only hope that the Shakespeare Festival will invite them back in the future.

But the real fun of the Shakespeare Festival is getting together with friends and family for an evening under the stars. Packing a gourmet picnic dinner has usually been our thing, but the venue has added an impressive array of vendors on site, with gourmet dishes you can order ahead of time, which will be ready for pick up before you enter the show. Just the ticket for a hassle free evening on the beach.

The Shakespeare Festival starts July 8th and runs through August 21, with other special performances through September 10th. The Monday night Showcase Series tend to sell out fast, so order your tickets today!
