Village Notes: What’s happening in Incline Village

Jean Eick
Special to the Bonanza

October brings so much to Tahoe with beautiful colors mixed into the forests — and of course the hope for fresh white snow. Yes, it is time for the pray for snow parties. The earlier the better this year. Bring it on.

Bears, bears everywhere. It is time to take care of our neighborhood bears and be sure that everyone helps to keep them away from trouble. Please, please watch your neighborhoods to be sure trash is not available but also that other food items are not left in cars or garages. They are hungry and we need to protect them.

On Friday, Oct. 10, enjoy Matthew Axton, Donna Axton and Ed Platt at the Mark Twain Cultural Center & Toccata Guttman Music Hall in the Village Center. Reservations at or 775-833-1835.

On Saturday, participate in the annual Worldwide Photo Walk. Local photograph Jim Markle will lead the Incline Village walk. To participate all you need to do is visit, find Incline Village, and sign up for the free walk. If you want more info, contact Jim at 775-815-5856.

And this weekend is the annual October Extravaganza in the Village Center. The event begins at noon on Saturday, Oct. 11, and features food, drinks, crafters and non-profits. Easel and Wine will be hosting a couple of art parties during the event. The first one begins at noon. The nonprofit beneficiary of Oktoberfest is Tahoe Family Solutions. Bring friends and spend the afternoon listening to music and enjoying a great community event. And drop off donations for Rhonda's annual coat drive at Bar Bar Bar.

TRPA and the Washoe County Health District, Air Quality Management Division and UNR's Business Environmental Program want to help local Incline residents keep our air clean. They are offering rebates to eligible homeowners in Incline to swap-out old wood stoves. To learn more, visit or call 775-834-3674.
