Firefest Lake Tahoe 

Helicopters will be the stars this year and will land just outside the venue. Guests can get a close up look and crews will be on hand to answer questions. The burn house sprinkler demonstration is back this year! Kids can climb aboard a fire engine, squirt a fire hose, enjoy the bounce house, and escape from the burn house. There will also be an opportunity to watch local firefighters use the jaws of life to extract someone from a demolished vehicle, as well as the chance to win raffle prizes for kids who complete the passport activity. Fire Fest began as a way to recognize National Fire Prevention Week, which was initially established in remembrance of the great Chicago fire of 1891, and to keep the public informed about the importance of fire prevention. 

Firefest is on Saturday, September 30 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. in the parking lot at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Lake Tahoe at 50 U.S. Hwy 50, Stateline. Admission is FREE, and the event is a great opportunity for families to have fun while learning about safety and conservation.

WorldWave One-Act Play Competition

The annual Tahoe WordWave is a spectacular theatre event that celebrates creativity and stories that can change the way we view the world and those around us. The one-night-only show is a culmination of a one-act play writing competition where the top three winning submissions from more than 100 entries are presented as a staged-reading. The playwrights are invited to attend the event to see their play come to life on the stage. After the show, you will have the opportunity to join us for a wine and dessert reception to meet the writers and learn more about their process.  This unique annual event is a not-to-be-missed evening of award-winning and oftentimes never before seen theatre.
