TRUCKEE, Calif. and#8212;-Everyone loves a parade, especially kids. The Tahoe Donner Ski Area is hosting an on-slope glow sticks parade this weekend designed exclusively for children ages 10 and under. The flow of colors will be like a liquid rainbow.

Children may register and enjoy a carnival with music, appetizers, balloon animals and games, 4:30-5:45 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 19. Among the prizes will be glow stick necklaces, bracelets, rings and sticks that can be worn in the parade. At 5:50 pm, parade participants will hop on the Snowbird chair lift for the 6 p.m. parade. The parade is limited to skiers and riders who can ski unassisted in the dark.

and#8220;Lots of ski areas have torch light parades, but this is our kid-friendly spin on that tradition,and#8221; said Robert McClendon, manager of the ski area. and#8220;This is one of our most popular events for young people at Tahoe Donner throughout the winter, and we have more coming up this spring.and#8221;
