North Tahoe Snowfest Parade set for Saturday

Submitted to the Tribune


The annual Kings Beach Snowfest Parade will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 5, along Nevada State Route 28 starting at Secline Street and ending at the Raccoon Street roundabout.

This event will feature creative and entertaining entries from over 20 community nonprofit organizations, governmental agencies, service groups and local businesses. There will be an announcing stand in front of the King Building on SR-28 at the Bear Street roundabout. The parade will take place snow, rain or shine.

Motorists should be aware that SR-28 in downtown Kings Beach will be closed between Nevada State Route 267 and Fox Street for the parade starting at 11:25 a.m. and should plan accordingly. Detour routes will be available to get around the parade route. Please follow posted detour signs and traffic management personnel. Motorists are asked to exercise patience and to drive slowly and carefully through Kings Beach residential neighborhood detour route. Kings Beach businesses within the road closure will maintain normal operating hours.

SR-28 will re-open as soon as the parade is complete and no later than 12:30 p.m. The Kings Beach Snowfest Parade is produced by North Tahoe Business Association and is sponsored by La Mexicana Meat Market & Taqueria, North Lake Tahoe Resort Association, North Tahoe Public Utility District, Placer County, Rotary Club of Tahoe City, Tahoe Forest Health System, Liberty Utilities, Mourelatos Lakeshore Resort, The Grid Bar & Grill, 101.5 KTKE Truckee-Tahoe Radio, Boys & Girls Club of North Lake Tahoe, Coldwell Banker Select, Granlibakken Tahoe, JR Krauss Ltd, Jason’s Beachside Grille, Karen’s Playskool, Lanza’s Restaurant, Plumas Bank, and Tahoe Central Market.

Plan to spend the full day in Kings Beach before and after the parade as there are many fun events planned including North Tahoe Public Utility District’s Pancake Breakfast, Dress-up Your Dog Contest, Fat Cat Kitchen’s Hot Wing Eating Contest, and post-parade parties at Tahoe Backyard and The Grid Bar & Grill.
