INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — This weekend is supposed to be a hot one for our village. My suggestion is to head to the beaches or off into the mountain trails to stay cool. Let’s see how many locals really do fit on one beach at a time. We also have lots of classical music happening this weekend. It is the last weekend for the free summer concerts sponsored by the Tahoe Chamber Music, and SummerFest has another weekend of concerts.
We do have fun events on the calendar too for the weekend. Join the Summer Sunset pool party on Saturday 10 a.m. -8 p.m. at the Tahoe Biltmore. Great way to cool off, let the kids have some fun and enjoy Tahoe.
Sunday is another busy day for events. First, the annual Tahoe’s Connection for Families Teddy Bear Picnic is in Aspen Grove. For more information visit tcfkids.org or call 775-832-8230. Also on Sunday the Women’s Club of North Lake Tahoe’s annual fashion show will be in the Lakeside Room at the Hyatt. The event includes a special prize for the most outrageous hat at the event! Tickets are $60 and can be purchased by calling Nan Healy at 775-832-0939.
Tim O’Brien, author of “The Things They Carried,” and Andy Whyman will be guest speakers at noon on Monday, Aug. 13, at the Rotary Club of Incline Village’s weekly meeting. Call Judy Spees at 775-832-7006 for information or to make a reservation to attend.
