Here it comes! The 36th annual Snowfest in North Lake Tahoe March 2-12th. Snowfest is a great chance to party with old friends and meet new ones at a host of fun activities.
March 2-Gar Woods Kick Off Party. Tons of great food and drink for just $35 as well as a live band and the coronation of the 2017 Snowfest Queen! All the proceeds go to support Snowfest.
March 3-Grand Opening Fireworks ceremony: This year moved from Squaw Valley to The Commons Beach in the center of Tahoe City, across from The Cobblestone. Don’t miss the fireworks at 8:30, but come early and enjoy what Tahoe City has to offer.
