Following on the heels of Tahoe City’s 150th Anniversary Celebration in 2013, an annual community celebration honoring Tahoe City’s 151st will take place Friday, August 8th from 5 to 8 PM at the Tahoe City Golf Course. The party will feature live music by The Roemers, a putting contest, a bocce ball tournament, drink specials, BBQ hamburger dinners and more.
According to public records, the place now recognized as Tahoe City, was surveyed and recorded by W. Taft on August 8, 1863. During the 2013 TC150 Anniversary Celebration, August 8 was proclaimed as Tahoe City Day, to be celebrated annually forevermore.
This year’s celebration of Tahoe City Day, appropriately dubbed “151”, will take place at the Tahoe City Golf Course on August 8th, from 5PM to 8PM. The Roemers, a local band from Tahoma, will play their eclectic musical range of blues, funk, rock, covers, and original songs outside on the golf course patio with room for a great party and a lot of dancing.
In addition, a putting contest and bocce ball tournament will take place during the party providing the opportunity for winning participants to claim the title of Tahoe City’s ‘Putting Champion’ and ‘Tahoe City’s Best Bocce Ball Team of 2014’.
“Tahoe City is a great town and we want to help the community celebrate all that it offers us,” stated Karen Willcuts, one of the event’s planners. “It is our plan to hold this event and celebrate Tahoe City Day every year on August 8th,” commented Ruth Schnabel, another of the organizers. “People worked hard to build this town 150 years ago, we ought to show some appreciation by throwing a great party.”
The Tahoe City Golf Course will be serving a low cost BBQ dinner of hamburgers with fixings. A full bar will also be available, and a special drink, just for 151, will be served.
“We’re looking forward to hosting a great party,” commented JJ Drake, General Manager of the Tahoe City Golf Course. “We hope to see a great community turnout.”
The Tahoe City Day Party and BBQ is being produced by Karen Willcuts and Ruth Schnabel of Tahoe Arts Festival, in partnership with the Tahoe City Golf Course and the Tahoe City Downtown Association. The party is graciously sponsored by The Store…Copies and More. Additional sponsorships and donations are welcome.
