Incline Village Notes: Wednesday, Oct. 28, 2015
Special to the Bonanza
Happy Halloween! Tonight, Oct. 29, is the annual community trail of treats from 4-7 p.m. Please remember to drive carefully if you are out and about. The Trail of Treats and Terror travels from the DWR Center, to the IVGID Rec. Center, Lake Tahoe School and ends at Sierra Nevada College.
Friday, Oct. 30, is Nevada Day. Remember that many local offices and businesses will be closed to celebrate this day.
Celebrate Nevada Day in style at the Battle Born Beerfest from 4-7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 30, at Alibi Ale Works at 204 E. Enterprise Street. This will benefit the Rotary Club of Tahoe-Incline and includes a tasting flight of locally-crafted beer, appetizers, live music and a discount coupon from Alibi for future beer purchases. There will also be raffles for fantastic prizes.
Incline’s Hacienda de la Sierra will be hosting a Halloween party starting at 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 30, to raise money for blood cancer research via the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The party will be honoring Warren Kendall – an Incline Village local and Sierra Nevada College student and Bill Sweeney.
And on Saturday night don’t forget to turn your clocks back. We get one extra hour of sleep on Sunday morning. Of course it is the hour we lost way back in March.
From 5-7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 3, the 3rd annual Day of the Dead Celebration takes place at Incline Elementary School. Includes food, dancing, contests and fun for the whole family. Everyone is welcome.
Have you put together a team to bowl in the Tahoe Family Solutions Bowl for Families event on Saturday, Nov. 7? This is a fun way to spend a few hours, help a local charity and teams always have so much fun. Please call Nayeli at 775-298-0004 for more information.
Don’t forget Tahoe SAFE Alliance’s annual Tahoe Chocolate & Wine Festival is from 6-10 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 7, at the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe. If you need more information, contact Dawn Harris at Tahoe SAFE Alliance at firstname.lastname@example.org or 775-298-0010.
