INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — Tahoe's Connection for Families will host its eighth annual Tahoe Teddy Bear Picnic on Sunday, May 20, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Aspen Grove.

At this fun family event, kids and their teddy bears visit arts, crafts, game, and activity stations. This year's guests will enjoy Bear Birthday Party, Camping, Construction, Face Painting, Bear Doctor and Dentist Check Up, Bear Salon, and Super Hero stations. There will also be an infant play area, sensory station, bounce house, and much more.

"Tahoe Teddy Bear Picnic is a wonderful time for families with young children," TCF Founder and Director of Education Laurean Meyer said. "The children really enjoy the bear themed activities. Each year the time flies by for the children because they have such a blast!"

A $35 Bearific Ticket includes a teddy bear, TCF water bottle, drawstring backpack, juice box, raffle tickets and more! A $15 General Admission Ticket includes unlimited access to the bounce house and teddy bear themed booths and activities. Food will be available for purchase from local vendor Red Truck and live music by Brooke Chabot will be enjoyed by all.

Tahoe Institute for Natural Science, Truckee Pediatric Dentistry, Tahoe Expedition Academy, Tahoe Speech Therapy, Meyer Construction, Incline Village Urgent Care, Lake Tahoe School, and more will be part of the activities. Additional businesses like Huff's Heating & Air, PDL Biopharma, Sunshine Bakery, and Raley's have also sponsored or provided donations to show their support of TCF and our community.

Families and volunteers have contributed to ensure the Teddy Bear Picnic's success and to make sure a wonderful time will be had by all. It takes a village to provide the needed funds and the manpower to make the event as amazing as it is and our village has exceeded expectations.
