The season of colors is upon us! Specifically in Lake Tahoe this means throughout the month of October, Quaking Aspen trees glow a brilliant gold and the vibrant red Kokanee Salmon spawn in Taylor Creek. To celebrate this event, the U.S. Forest Service sponsors the Kokanee Salmon Festival at the Lake Tahoe Visitor Center at Taylor Creek, 3 miles north of South Lake Tahoe on California Highway 89. On Oct. 6 come participate in this family fun event which has become one of the most interesting and educational events in Northern California.
This free event encourages participation in a wide variety of educational and entertaining events. Back this year will be the Salmon Feed, educational programs and booths, and streamside programs. Wild Things returns Saturday afternoon at 2 pm in the Lake of the Sky amphitheater. View native Sierra Nevada animals on stage. These animals cannot be rehabilitated, are used for educational purposes and cared for by Wild Things, Inc. New this year is a giant 40 foot inflatable fish for children to explore. "Sammy Salmon" (the official mascot) will make appearances each day.
