Labor Day Events in Lake Tahoe Truckee
Labor Day is almost here! It is a U.S. Federal Holiday, honoring the workers, that is always celebrated on the first Monday in September. In 2013, the holiday falls on Monday, September 2, 2013.
Just like Memorial Day in the Truckee and Lake Tahoe area signifies the opening of the Lakes and Beaches in the area, Labor Day, signifies that the closing of the Lakes and Beaches is near. The Donner Lake Property Owners Private Beach, located at Donner Lake next to the public West End Beach, officially closes for the season on September 29, 2013. New this year, Donner Lake residents can purchase a gate key so that they can use the beach in the off seasons. For residents of Tahoe Donner, their Tahoe Donner Marina and Beach Club at Donner Lake, officially closes on October 6, 2013.
If you are a Truckee resident, it’s always a great idea to do your grocery shopping ahead of the Labor Day crowds coming into town for the Labor Day Weekend. Also, be sure to allow plenty of extra time to get to where you are going, as there will be more cars than normal on the road.
There is always lots of things to do in the Truckee area, and lots of events in the surrounding areas.
