LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Tahoe needs more events

It’s great to read there will be a second restaurant week in October. This is the type of event we need to attract visitors and get the locals out to support our local establishments. I hope the week-long event will be on the calendar for years to come.

Many years ago there was an attempt to have the month of June established as music theme month. Each weekend the resorts at Stateline had the same type of musical entertainment. It only lasted one year but I thought it had a possibility to become a regular event also.

For too many years we’ve depended on holiday weekends and the celebrity golf tournament to carry the community financially. Now we have expanded into Hot August Nights and restaurant week. This can be the start but the marketing people in town must understand we need more events.
