Truckee Day!   Leave a comment

Truckee Day 47

By Tim Hauserman

The warm temperatures of spring bring waterfalls and wildflowers to the Sierra. Spring also, uncovers all that litter which accumulated under the snow during the winter. The 13th annual Truckee Day on June 4th is an opportunity to clean up a good portion of that litter and make Truckee sparkle again. It is also a time to enjoy the springtime by getting out and playing with your neighbors.

Truckee Day is a town-wide clean up and civic pride day. Volunteers spend their morning joining an estimated 500 other folks making their town look cleaner. Then the afternoon is spent being festive at the the Truckee River Regional Park where a BBQ and community expo will be happening. Volunteers get a T-shirt and free lunch ticket.

“It’s a really special day because it brings the whole community together. It celebrates community and cleans up the beautiful place we live in,” says event coordinator Erica Jue, Recycling Coordinator for the Town of Truckee. For information on the event contact Erica at 582-2909. www.truckeeday.org

In addition to cleaning up garbage, you could also lend a hand to the community by becoming a Weed Warrior with the Truckee River Watershed Council. While council representative Jeannette Halderman hopes some invasive weeds get removed, the real goal is to educate the public on what weeds are invasive and causing problems in the region. For information on the weed warrior program contact Jeannette at 550-8760 x 6.

There’s Music In The Air…   Leave a comment

Summer season at North Lake Tahoe and Truckee means music concerts – mostly free – throughout the basin. With musical styles running the gamut, you can sit back and enjoy as the band is ‘Singing the Blues’ or you can ‘Listen to a Country Song’, rock out to the ‘Rock of Ages’ and get down with your bad self when they ‘Play That Funky Music’. (Ten points if you can name all the artists who sang those…)

Most of these venues encourage you to bring a picnic along with your low backed chairs and blankets. Sip a glass of wine while you relax for an evening of open air entertainment. (decant beverages into plastic bottles if you can. Broken glass on the beach is a real buzz kill).  Don’t feel like cooking or packing picnics? Some venues offer food and beverage vendors on site that can sate your hunger pangs and wet your whistle.

In Tahoe City, The Tahoe City Downtown Association and the Tahoe City Public Utility District hosts the Concerts at Commons Beach. Concerts are held on Sundays and start at 3 or 4 pm and go until 7pm. Once again, local businesses and community groups sponsor this event too. Click the link above for more information, and there is also a place for you to donate to ‘the cause’ on the website.

In Kings Beach, The North Tahoe Business Association hosts Music on the Beach every Friday from 6-8:30pm at the Kings Beach State Recreation Area. What makes this particular venue even more enjoyable is not only its vast sandy beach, but its sandy lake bottom and warmer water temperatures that make it perfect for a before concert afternoon swim. Kings Beach also has many restaurants and food purveyors in quick walking distance to the beach. Come early though, as there is road work being done in the area which can slow you down. Parking is available for a fee at the beach, but parking here can fill up early, so plan accordingly. As always, support your local sponsors of this event.

Dubbed ‘Serenades at Sunset’, the locations, days and prices vary from venue to venue, so be sure to check out their website as to what is being played where and when and for how much. Links on the website allow you to buy tickets for these concerts in advance.
