Kiwanis of Lake Tahoe will host its first community fair this weekend.
The fair will take place Aug. 30 through Sept. 1 in the lower parking lot of Heavenly Resort. It will feature craft booths, a cooking contest, a jam contest, floral displays and carnival rides such as a Ferris Wheel. There is no entrance fee.
The idea for the event came from club president Rich Barna, who wanted to create a family event that would bring the community and visitors together to support youth in the community, according to a press release.
The event is hosted by Kiwanis, Optimist, Boys & Girls Club, Choices for Children, Live Violence Free and Tahoe Turning Point to benefit local service clubs and nonprofits that provide services to families and children in South Lake Tahoe.
