One of the biggest celebrations in Lake Tahoe is about to begin.
Snowfest, a weeklong, Mardi Gras-style festival, is a celebratory event that has excitement happening all around the lake. From parties to fireworks, concerts to parades, Paint The Snowman to the annual Polar Bear Swim, this is an event that is not to be missed.
The Kickoff Party is this Thursday, February 27, beginning at 5 p.m., and will offer unlimited appetizers, beer, wine and Wet Woodies as well as the opportunity to enjoy great live music by Blues Monsters. You will also get the chance to meet Alex Mourelatos, one of the locals in our community who is making a difference. Owner and creator of the outstanding Mourelatos Lakeshore Resort, he has assisted the Lake Tahoe basin in becoming a world-class destination for the last 40 years. As the Parade Grand Marshall, Alex will be hosting the event, showcasing his collaborative reputation and fun wit. In an offering of friendship, Mourelatos Lakeshore Resort is also offering 15% off any room reservation to help people enjoy this festive occasion.
So, what will you see and do at this year's SnowFest celebration?
Here are a few upcoming events that I am particularly excited about.
