Lake Tahoe’s record winter is but a distant memory of the past as summer temperatures continue to rise. Now that summer is in full throttle, Tahoe is ready to roll with an epic line-up of summer festivities! Local venues have been eagerly awaiting this time of year and the Buckingham Team is here to ensure your Tahoe getaway starts off on the right track! With all the activities and adventures, a last-minute road trip or weekend getaway is not out of the ordinary, especially in South Lake Tahoe. So, what exactly are the events that attract thousands of people out to Lake Tahoe every summer?
One main event is the annual “Lights on the Lake” fireworks show held on the Fourth of July at 9:45pm. South Shore has more than a couple of creative places to view the show. For those who prefer to stick to the shoreline, Nevada Beach is equipped with barbecues and picnic tables for family and friends to gather together for a joyful day. If you are an early riser, take advantage of Regan and El Dorado Beaches. Both beaches fill up fast, but offer astonishing views of the fireworks show. Would you rather be front and center on the water during the famous Fourth of July tradition? Cruise around on the crystal-clear waters of Lake Tahoe in a boat rental from Ski Run Marina. Whether you decide to watch the annual “Lights on the Lake” fireworks show from the sandy shorelines or on the glassy waters of Lake Tahoe, there is no such thing as a bad view in South Lake Tahoe! Also, don’t forget to tune your radio to KRLT-FM 93.9 or KOWL-AM 1490 for a music broadcast that will bring out your inner patriotism as the fireworks burst in the sky, syncing with the music.
Another big event that draws in thousands of people each summer to South Lake Tahoe is the American Century Celebrity Golf Tournament. This year, the golf tournament will be held on July 11th through July 16th. With the 28th annual golf tournament less than a month away, the stars are perfecting their swing as they prepare to compete for the cherished American Century Championship Cup. The celebrity golf tournament is held at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course and will host more than 80 of the greatest stars in the sports and entertainment industry. Former Dallas Cowboys Quarterback, Tony Romo, will be returning for the first time in five years. Other familiar faces who will be joining the tournament in Lake Tahoe are comedian, Ray Romano, Jacksonville Jaguars Quarterback, Blake Bortals, Justin Timberlake and Los Angeles Rams Quarterback, Jared Geoff. This premier celebrity golf tournament, which also raises funds for local and national charities, features a record purse of $600,000. Fans from around the nation will gather to cheer on their favorite celebrities in beautiful Lake Tahoe for a week of excitement and fun. Have you bought your tickets for the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship yet? No need to worry if you haven’t! Tickets may be purchased on-site at Edgewood Tahoe’s front gate the day of the event.
