Special to the Bonanza

Oh yes it is time for the annual snow event for Memorial weekend. It always snows at Tahoe to celebrate the opening of the lake. Lots of local barbecues and yard sales planned for this weekend as well as projects like cleaning out the garage or enjoying a new pantry. Of course, taking center stage is the official opening of the lake.

If you want to celebrate with a parade, head over to Virginia City. The parade starts at noon on Saturday, May 24, and celebrates the heroism and sacrifice of those Americans who died defending our freedom. Freedom is not free.
