The schedule of activities for the day is:

3:30 p.m.: Raffle tickets and Ullr hats for sale at Base Lodge Deck

4-7 p.m.: Ullr BBQ & drink specials

5:30-8:30 p.m.: Live music

6 p.m. (dusk): Torchlight parade & bonfire (parade on show-off, viewing on decks)

7:30 p.m.: Raffle & costume contest at Loft Bar

Festivities continue Saturday with a gala dinner and auction at The Chateau in Incline Village.

The dinner will run from 5:30-11 p.m., and will include dancing as well as a live and silent auction.

Tickets for the dinner are $100 per person, $180 per couple or $900 per table of 10. They can be purchased online at http://www.dpsef.org.
