What makes Tahoe unique will be on display at Lake Tahoe this Labor Day Weekend with the return of the Tahoe Expo.

The event features a wide variety of activities taking place all around the Lake Tahoe region.

“The Tahoe Expo has put together a diverse suite of ‘Geo-Tracks’ to educate, excite and enlighten people about the special features of Tahoe,” according to a press release for the event.

“This Labor Day Weekend, you can challenge yourself with kayaking, hiking, bicycling and stand up paddleboard yoga, or engage your mind with the history, science and sustainability of the area.”

As part of the expo, which focuses on the concept of geotourism, the Washoe Tribe will hold a community gathering at Sand Harbor State Park.

The gathering starts at 9 a.m. and includes food, drink, arts and crafts and live entertainment.

“Geotourism means attracting people to enjoy the unique characteristics of an area while ensuring those unique features remain sustainable as an attraction for years to come,” according to the release.

Most Geo-Tracks require a reservation and range in price from free to $65. More information is available at
