It’s like an old fashioned country fair spiced with Tahoe mountain culture.
The Kiwanis Club of South Lake Tahoe brings its annual Community Fair to Lake Tahoe Community College Friday, August 29 through Monday, September 1, from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. the remaining days.
The action takes place in the main parking lot at LTCC. Admission is free, and proceeds from the fair go to support great local organizations that make a difference in our community: the Lake Tahoe Community College Foundation, Tahoe Sierra Kiwanis, Lake Tahoe Optimist Club, Choices For Children, Live Violence Free, Tahoe Turning Point, the Boys & Girls Club, the Kiwanis Club of Lake Tahoe, the Aktion Club, and South Lake Tahoe High School Football.
Fair goers can enjoy carnival rides, live entertainment, family games, a car show, great food, crafts, and lots of fun contests. Satisfy your hunger with the BBQ wagon, hot dogs, burgers, corn on the cob, snow cones, corndogs, funnel cakes, deep fried Oreos, cotton candy and popcorn. Visit The Happy Lemon booth for fresh lemonade, pulled pork and pretzels. Jamba Juice will also be there with refreshing beverages. Home chefs can participate in a Jam and Preserve contest, so if you have a favorite recipe you want to show off at the fair, contact Julie at (530) 307-8101 for more information.
Garden enthusiasts can check out the Garden Creation booth to get great ideas to try at home. If you have a creative gardening idea you’d like to share at the fair, enter your creation by contacting Karen Houser at KarenHouser6@gmail.com.
Fans of Volkswagons won’t want to miss the VW air cooled vehicle show on Saturday, with VW bugs, buses, dune buggies and kit cars on display. VW owners who want to join in the fun pay a $25 entry fee that gets them a Show and Shine, access to rides and games, and a goodie bag including a hot dog or burger, chips, and a drink. For more information about the car show, send an email to DonBorges@aol.com.
Bring the kids on Saturday too, so they can participate in a slew of fun contests for free! There will be a hula hoop contest, a sack race, a three-legged race, a balloon race, a watermelon eating contest, a pie eating contest with delicious pies donated by Cakes By The Lake, and a cake walk with cupcakes donated by Lakeside Landing.
All of the carnival rides and games are being supplied by World Amusements. Thrill seekers can ride their brand-new Ferris wheel , feel the G-forces from the Zipper, or take a walk through the House of Mirrors. “Level Up Curbside Gaming” will also be there Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Housed in a large tractor trailer, kids of all ages can go in and enjoy Level Up’s unique mobile video arcade with giant screens.
