Summer is officially underway here in Lake Tahoe… The boats are in the water, the bicycles are out, and the weather has been incredible! Along with the beautiful summer weather comes a wide array of activites and events for all ages. Here are just a few of our favorite upcoming events for June in Lake Tahoe.
June 7-9 Valhalla Renaissance Faire: If you’ve never been to a Ren Faire before, you should definitely check this out. It’s like nothing you’ve ever experienced and the beautiful, rustic setting at Camp Richardson couldn’t be more appropriate. The Faire features four stages of continuous entertainment, action packed shows, music, dancing, jesters, 900 costumed actors, Shakesperian vignettes, expertly staged battles, storytelling for children and adults, archery tournaments and live jousting (on horseback!). Shop over 100 merchants selling a variety of arts and crafts, unique jewelry, woodcrafts, artwork, ceramic, clothing, historic weapons and leather goods. The first weekend of the Faire has already come and gone, but you can still check out this unique attraction this weekend. Don’t forget to stop into Camp Richardson’s old-fashioned Ice Cream Parlor for a cool treat after the Faire. For more information visit www.valhallafaire.com
