With fall colors firmly set and those night time Lake Tahoe temperatures dropping, the snow has already begun to fly. Ahead of the holidays is Harvest and Halloween.
Downtown Tahoe City’s “Great Pumpkin” can be found Oct. 27 during the Community Festival and Pumpkin Patch at Rideout Community Center, 740 Timberland Lane in Tahoe City. This family event features costume contests, carnival games, pony rides, bounce house and face painting. Back for the third year is the Giant Pumpkin Seed Hunt, a favorite activity for kids and perfect photo opportunity for parents.
Night time pre-Halloween venues include Bride of Bounce-O-Ween at Lakeside Pizza and Sports Bar, Saturday, Oct. 27. This glitch-hop dubstep party features Ft Russ Liquid, Thriftworks and Hamm FM. Show begins at 9 p.m.
You’re sure to find plenty of drink and food specials for Halloween at any number of downtown bars and restaurants including the Blue Agave, the Bridgetender, Pete N’ Peter’s, Lakeside Pizza and Sports Bar, The River Grill and Rosie’s Cafe.
