SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – About 3,000 people went to Bijou Bash Saturday afternoon, making the event a big success, said Chris Hawken the assistant director of parks and recreation for the City of South Lake Tahoe.

“Last year people sort of crescendoed in the afternoon, this year it seemed to be a more consistent crowd,” Hawken said.

The weather also set the perfect stage for the event with temperatures in the 70s, Hawken said.

“If you could have picked the weather, that would have been what I would have picked,” Hawken said.

Staff from the recreation department will be debriefing this week about the event and how to improve it for next year.

“The feedback I have received so far has been positive,” Hawken said. “I think between last year and this year we have what worked well.
