Nevada Senator Harry Reid is hosting the 20th Annual Lake Tahoe Summit with Special Keynote Speaker President Obama on Wednesday, Aug. 31, at Harvey’s Outdoor Arena in Stateline.

Gates will open at Harvey’s Outdoor Arena at 11:30 a.m. and attendees are encouraged to arrive by 11:30 a.m. for the 1:30 p.m. event due to expected long lines and security check points. Doors will close prior to 1:30 p.m. and no late entry will be allowed.

Attendees will be permitted to bring their cell phones to the event, but cameras with large lenses will not be allowed. Other items prohibited are no large bags, no backpacks, no outside food or beverage, and no umbrellas.

For security purposes, the President’s travel route will not be released, however, law enforcement will work at minimizing closure durations. There will be rolling road closures and delays are not expected to exceed 30 minutes. Traffic could be affected anytime between noon and 4 p.m.

Per Senator Reid’s office, shuttle service will not be provided for this year’s Summit.
