Father’s Day Activities in Tahoe, TahoesBest.com Announces the Best Ways to Spend Father’s Day 2013

Jun 4, 2013

Father’s Day 2013 is just two weeks away, so now’s the time to start planning a special day to celebrate Dad this year. Because Lake Tahoe has ideal summer weather and plenty of things to do with the whole family, it’s the perfect spot for a Father’s Day celebration. This year, treat Dad to the stunning views of the lake and remember to thank him for all his hard work and unconditional love.

Whether Dad wants to check out a public Father’s Day event or prefers to spend the day one-on-one with his family, TahoesBest.com reveals some of the best things to do on Father’s Day 2013 in Lake Tahoe.

Concert on Tahoe Gal

The Tahoe Gal presents a live music concert on Father’s Day featuring a performance by Mumbo Gumbo. This eclectic band promises danceable music with rock, soul, country, and afropop influences for a lively evening on the lake.

Tickets to join the musicians aboard the Tahoe Gal cost $100, but guests are welcome to invite Dad and float along next to the cruise while listening to the music from the comfort of their own boats, kayaks, and paddleboards. And don’t worry if Dad doesn’t own his own vessel because there are plenty of Tahoe watersport companies that can provide the whole family with watercrafts of their own.

Regardless of whether music lovers are on the Tahoe Gal or their own floatation devices, this event offers a unique way to honor Dad this year.

Recreational Activities

No Dad can pass up the opportunity to spend the day on the greens, especially if it’s in the company of his kids, so treat Dad to a round of golf in picturesque Tahoe this Father’s Day. Lake Tahoe presents some of the most scenic golf courses around with courses that run through meadows, forests, and creeks, providing an unforgettable day for an unforgettable dad.

If Dad’s more nautical at heart, then he may vote for Tahoe fishing over golfing. Lake Tahoe is the largest alpine lake in the United States, so there’s nothing more tempting than the promise of a fishing trip for Father’s Day. Head over to the Truckee River for some fly fishing or book a spot on a Tahoe charter and fish for Kokanee Salmon out on the lake. Eating fresh caught fish for dinner will certainly create a special end to a memorable Father’s Day in Tahoe.

Truckee Father’s Day Ribfest and BBQ

This family festival takes place at the Tri Counties Bank Plaza, where families can celebrate their dads while eating BBQ and listening to live music. The ribs, rods, and rock ‘n’ roll themed event is a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life of Truckee Tahoe, so guests can have fun while donating to a good cause as well.

The event offers BBQ grub from local restaurants and vendors and a beer garden where Dad can relax with a tasty brew. Guests can also rock out to the live music, featuring The Deckheads and Blues Callin’. And to top off this Dad-dedicated event, the festival also presents a classic car show, arts and crafts, and children’s activities to entertain the whole family.
