INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — Tahoe’s Connection for Families will host its fifth annual Teddy Bear Picnic on Sunday, May 31, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Aspen Grove in Incline Village.

This fun family event is a teddy bear-themed extravaganza featuring arts and crafts, bear cookie decorating, a bounce house, a bear hair salon, a bear doctor, a bear camping and fishing area, bear story time and more.

Kids can bring their teddy bears to join in on a bear-y good time or bears can be purchased at the door while supplies last.

A $35 VIP admission includes a teddy bear, TCF water bottle, photo booth session, and drawstring backpack.

A $15 general admission includes unlimited access to bounce house and teddy bear themed booths and activities.

Food will be available for all to purchase from local vendor, Gus’ Open Pit Barbecue.

“This event is wonderful for families with young children,” TCF Director Laurean Meyer said. “The children really enjoy the bear themed activities. The time flies by for the children because they have such a blast.”

The Tahoe Teddy Bear Picnic brings locals and visitors together to celebrate bears, Tahoe-style. This event is sure to be a great place to mingle with friends and get to know other families in our community.

Proceeds from the event support TCF, a nonprofit organization in Incline Village that offers parenting education and early childhood development programs for families with infants and toddlers up to pre-school.
