?? 2023 IVCB SkyShow ??

June 27, 2023 | Julie Malkin-Manning

Tuesday, July 4 7-9 PM at the Ridgeline Ballfields (Incline Middle School) in Incline Village

Last year’s SkyShow, presented by the IVCB SkyShow Coalition, amazed over 5,000 spectators with the first and largest commercial drone show ever flown over Lake Tahoe.

Building on its overwhelming success, this year’s event is bigger and brighter! 

The evening will kick off with pre-show entertainment with DJ Mark Sexton and emcee Uncle E, featuring family-friendly activities, a Beer Garden with Incline Spirits & Cigars and food trucks, and an enchanting laser show, followed by the highly anticipated drone show. 

Incline Spirits & Cigars will be offering canned cocktails, wine, and 4 draught beers. Attendees must go through ID Check and get a wristband before being served.


*Kona Ice – serving Shaved Ice

*775EatsReno – serving sandos, shrimp, smash burgers, and veggie items

*Betty’s Balls and Tapas – serving Tapas and specialty sliders

*Slice of Sierra – Serving Authentic NY Style Pizza

Before the show, kids are invited to indulge in free face painting sponsored by Inside Incline, Plinko for a Prize with Party Like a Mother, and Daisy Daycare will be selling glow-in-the-dark items as a fundraiser. 

A revamped viewing area will provide an optimal vantage point for spectators to experience the breathtaking display of lasers and 250 drones (50 more than last year) lighting up the summer Sierra sky. You can simulcast the synchronized music for the laser and drone show, by DJ Mark Sexton. Download the SkyStreamEvents App at this QR Code.

Attendees are encouraged to bring beach chairs, blankets, and coolers to the event, but please… no glass. Help Keep Tahoe Blue and take home your trash. Bowl Incline will also be offering to-go picnics for the event. 

Attendees are encouraged to help reduce traffic by biking, walking, and taking shuttles to the SkyShow. 

Park & Walk lots: Incline Middle School, Parasol, IVGID Recreation Center, Travel North Tahoe Nevada Welcome Center, The Chateau. 

Shuttle lots: The Chateau, Lower Ski Way/Fairview Lot, and Diamond Peak Lower Lot. Shuttles will run 7 – 11 PM. 

This free and inclusive July 4th event is open to all residents, as well as their guests and visitors to North Lake Tahoe. It offers a unique opportunity for the entire community to celebrate together while supporting our vibrant local economy. “This show is the perfect way to celebrate the holiday while still protecting our land and promoting sustainable practices,” says Andy Chapman, President/CEO of Travel North Tahoe Nevada, a leading member of the SkyShow Coalition. 

Introduced in 2022 as a sustainable alternative to traditional fireworks, the IVCB SkyShow ensures a safer celebration for our community. With an alarming 19,500 fires caused by fireworks in 2018, it became crucial to find a way to celebrate without jeopardizing the land and community’s safety. The SkyShow also represents an important step toward reducing air pollution in the Incline Village and Crystal Bay communities.
