Who say’s May is the off-season? It’s actually a fun time of year in Tahoe City. It’s getting warmer, the crowds are small, but there are lots of fun things to do. Check out these two events for example right in the middle of our fair city.
May 19, 6:30 pm
Running 172 miles on the Tahoe Rim Trail
Join Gretchen Brugman from the Donner Party Mountain Runners, as she tells the story of four friends thru running the Tahoe Rim Trail. For those of us who have struggled to hike that baby in two weeks, running it sounds like quite the accomplishment. It’s not just the mileage, but over 26,000 feet of climbing and descent that would do you in. The Donner Party Mountain Runners is a non-profit organization dedicated to “inform and inspire mountain runners in Truckee-Tahoe.” A $3 donation is requested. Any questions call Alpenglow at 530-583-6917.
May 30, Noon to 7 pm
Trunk Show’s Second Annual Bringin’ the Love party
The Trunk Show is an awesome little art store that packs a lot of punch, both in the store and in how involved they are in the community. For this event The Cobblestone front parking lot will be closed off for party time. The Lake Tahoe Dance Collective, will be dancing. There will be beer from the Tahoe Mountain Brewery, and margaritas from the Trunk Show, and music from Mr. D of Deep Tracks. Then of course there will be lots of art and artists demonstrating their amazing talents on site. A Fundraising Art Sale Tent will be set up with a portions of the proceeds going to the Lake Tahoe Dance Collective.
Events such as this happen because of volunteers who help, and the get er done attitude of Trunk Show’s Jaclyn Woznicki who says, “Thank you again for the support that you have shown to Trunk Show over the past two years. The business has grown into something I hadn’t fully foreseen & I couldn’t have done it without all of you. Together we can all make a difference in our community by supporting small, local businesses and the people that contribute to them.”
So come on down and check out these events, and remember. Good things do happen in May.
