It was a cold one but visitors (who read the North Tahoe Weekly) and tons of local tribes showed up at the Truckee Ampitheater for the first ever Family Day. There was an awesome Bike Rodeo which was totally safe but had just enough height to keep the 2-year-olds’ parents on the run.
The setting, as always, was perfect. The Ampitheater occupies a peaceful nook along the Truckee River right near downtown Truckee. Local musician Todd Wees gathered quality, kid-friendly bands like his own and entertained for hours while rainbows, sun and bit of afternoon rain kept everyone guessing. There was an awesome bounce house, the best strudel you’ve ever tasted and some local brews for those who could add to 21. Family Day in Truckee – put it on the late-August calendar for 2011 because it was good ole fashioned hoot.
