The Local Lens – Local Heroes Weekend
June 29, 2022 | Linda Offerdahl
Start the 4th of July weekend with TOCCATA’s Red, White & Blue “Salute to America” concert with Broadway, opera, and patriotic music at the Chateau at 7pm on Friday, July 1! The Tahoe Symphony Orchestra, founded by Conductor James Rawie and his wife Nancy, perform concerts year-round at many venues in the region. If you have never been to one of their concerts, you are in for a treat!
Saturday is the NLTFPD Pancake Breakfast, followed by the Local Heroes Parade and Community Fair on the Village Green. Sunday and Monday are filled with patriotic and events that honor Veterans. Monday, July 4 is the first ever Incline Village Crystal Bay Sky Show. Best viewing for this drone show is right at the Ridgeline Ballfields at Incline Middle School. Details for all events is found at 4thofjulytahoe.com.
LAST CALL – For putting up your flag and decorating for the 4th!! Doesn’t the town look festive??
BREAKING NEWS… T’s Rotisserie had a fire on Sunday that will keep them closed until August sometime. This very popular, very busy restaurant will be missed. Jamie and crew, best of luck with getting things operational again. Chuck Swing assures me that the crew is being taken care of. Several are being engaged by other restaurants during the heavy summer season.
SUMMER TIPS FROM LOCALS
BURNT CEDAR POOL…is remodeled and open again! Try to stay away from the weekend crowds…duh! Same for Raleys at 4 p.m., any day of the week. They open at 6 a.m.!
SAND HARBOR…REALLY HARD to get to in the summer, even on a weekday. Instead of taking your car, take the East Shore Express from the “old elementary school” at 771 Southwood. It runs continuously from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily with a stop at Raleys. It’s not just for visitors…it’s for anyone wanting to guarantee their visit to Sand Harbor or to decrease the traffic on Highway 28.
OK, this week has provided a crash course in how to navigate Incline roads, what with all the NDOT work on several streets at once! With a little ingenuity, you can find the “back roads” or alternate routes and avoid long lines on Tahoe Blvd.
