Kokanee Salmon at Taylor Creek

 

And don’t forget, the Fall Fish Festival at Taylor Creek is this Saturday, as is the Octoberfest celebration at Camp Richardson on Saturday as well as Sunday. Photos from South Shore show that there is water in the creek, the salmon are starting to arrive and fall colors are turning on the trees that haven’t lost their leaves due to the drought. Bring an umbrella. Sunday looks to be a tad rainy.

23rd Annual Valhalla Renaissance Faire   Leave a comment

By Michelle Portesi

Strolling minstrels and Renaissance craftsman return to South Lake Tahoe’s Camp Richardson for this annual event. Step back into a bygone era and experience a bit of what life was like in the time of  Shakespeare, ladies in waiting, chivalrous knights and let face it, industrious peasants .

The Valhalla Renaissance Faire starts this weekend, Saturday. May 30th and Sunday May 31 and continues next weekend on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, June 5, 6 and 7.

Fancy a turkey drumstick and an ale while watching a jousting contest? Then this is the event for you! Admire the elaborate Elizabethan era costumes on the Faire’s cast of players as they stroll the grounds, play concerts or sell their wares. Visitors are encouraged to join in on the fashion statements and there is sure to be a frilly frock or jaunty hat for sale in the midst of all the revelry if you don’t happen to already own such vintage attire.

A family friendly event, there are various shows and parades all through the day.  The most interesting venues however may be watching how food was prepared and goods were made  – by hand –  before automated factories came along.

Lake Tahoe’s Taylor Creek Fall Fish Festival 2014   2 comments

Last Year’s Fall Fish Festival was cancelled due to the government shutdown. Wouldn’t you know, Taylor Creek Visitor’s Center is one of the few National Parks in the Tahoe basin, as most are state run. But this year it’s on for this weekend October 4th and 5th from 10am until 4pm.  The visitor center will play host to a full day of family fun sure to be both entertaining and informative. If you’ve never been there, do be sure to go to the river viewing chamber where you can watch what goes on under the water of a river bed.  Fall is the best time to walk along the lovely trails that follow the river as the area is laden with aspens. Watch out for bears though, as fall is the time they engorge themselves on the spawning salmon in the creek as they fatten up for their winter hibernation.

Right next door is the Historic Baldwin Estate. While the tours through the old mansion have ended for the season, the grounds are still open for wandering. It’s one of the most peaceful and beautiful areas when you have it all to meander by yourself.

 

Lake Tahoe and Truckee abound in bike trails, perfect for a ride or a leisurely stroll.

If a bike ride is more in your plans, there is a wonderful bike trail that follows that entire area of South Lake Tahoe’s  Historic Area. Camp Richardson is just down the road a piece, and will also be hosting its Octoberfest celebration this weekend as well. And a bike may be the best way to get around all of what’s going on there this weekend, as parking for your car can be a bit dicey with so many events in the area. If you do drive, plan to come early.
