4-day party planned for Tahoe City’s 153rd b-day

Special to the Sun

According to public records, the place now recognized as Tahoe City was surveyed and recorded by W. Taft on August 8, 1863.

Thus, this year, 2016, marks the 153rd anniversary of Tahoe City.

For the past two years, Tahoe City’s anniversary has been celebrated with a Procession and a Town Party at the Tahoe City Golf Course. This year, the anniversary will be celebrated with an expanded schedule, August 5 through August 8, for Tahoe City Days.

Planned events include a Poker Prowl, Scavenger Hunt, Historical Walking Tours, Sidewalk Saturdays, 4-person Golf Scramble, the town’s favorite Concerts on Commons Beach, and a Town Party with a barbecue, bocce ball, corn hole and putting tournament.

Party-goers will be treated to great music by favorite local band Groove Foundry.

After events Friday through Sunday, the kick-off event to the Town Party will be the Tahoe City Days Procession at 5 p.m. Monday, August 8, along the bike trail, beginning at the bike trail connector next to the post office parking lot and ending at Commons Beach.

Following the procession, participants and spectators are invited to the Tahoe City Town Party at the Tahoe City Golf Course.

Tahoe City Days is inviting everyone in the community to participate in this fun event. Dress up in your favorite old-timey costume and skate, walk, ride your decorated bike or golf cart, pull your wagon with your pets or kids, build a push-cart float, create a drill team, form a band, or be a clown. Use your imagination to come up with something historic and funny.

There’s no fee to participate in the procession and no registration form. For information, email TahoeCityDays@gmail.comor call 530-583-5605.

Tahoe City Days is sponsored by Loverde Builders, Blue Agave, the Bridgetender, Plumas Bank and Dockside 700.
