AleWorX Autumn Carnival – South Lake Tahoe Family Fun

Ready for one ale of a good time? Swing by the AleWorX Autumn Carnival this Sunday, October 22, for a family-friendly event that is bound to please all ages. AleWorX autumn carnival.jpg

If you haven’t heard, Lake Tahoe AleWorX is new on the Tahoe food & beverage scene, and they’re making a delicious splash. They aim to unite Tahoe adventure enthusiasts with the fuel of craft beer. Their approach is adventurous itself. As you walk in, you are handed a wristband which can be scanned at either beer taps or the wood-fire pizza counter. This means you get to pour your own beers — from tastings to full pours — and tally up your total on a wristband as you go. Choose from 25 rotating taps of craft beer (both local and other), 3 types of wine, 1 kombucha, and 1 nitro coffee. You don’t get to make your pizza, but leaving it up to the professionals there has scrumptious results.

The AleWorX Autumn Carnival is the perfect chance to check out this local eatery & taphouse. The carnival will be filled with fun and all things Tahoe-based. This event will bring the community and travelers alike together for one unforgettable (and mouth-watering) day.

Where: 2050 Lake Tahoe Blvd, South Lake Tahoe (click here for map)

When: Sunday, October 22, 2017 from 12:00pm – 8:00pm.

What: The event will have traditional carnival games and face painting for the kids, live music throughout the day, a costume contest for participants of any age, a pizza eating contest, a Paint n Sip class, a performance by the Tahoe Fire Dancers for all, The Loft Tahoe is presenting Magic Fusion, Revive Coffee  & Wine is putting on a Barista Throwdown, and of course there will be a photobooth to capture a memory from the day.

Cost: It is FREE to come check out the event, but bring some bucks to try out all the tasty craft beers, food, and other beverages available.


RnR Vacation Rentals would love to host your weekend stay as you enjoy the carnival, then need a place to rest & recover afterward. Give us a click at RnRvr.com or a call at 855-99-TAHOE and let us handle the accommodations while you handle the fun.

Pick up a Pumpkin in South Lake Tahoe

The City of South Lake Tahoe may be known for its access to the clear blue lake, adventure sports galore, and transition to a winter wonderland, but it’s no stranger to the love of all things fall–including a good pumpkin carving. If you’re looking to get away from the day-to-day and experience fall traditions in a new setting, then we’ve got the homes and the game plan for you.

If you’re coming from the Bay Area, visit a pumpkin patch on your way into town at either Boa Vista Orchards or Mill View Ranch. Boa Vista OrchardsBoa Vista Orchards is on your way off of Highway 50 in the city of Placerville. The orchards offers apple picking, pumpkins to pick of all sizes, and a wide variety of food and drink to try. If you work up an appetite searching for the perfect pumpkin, try one of their famous apple donut ice cream sandwiches.

Mill View Ranch is located in the small town of Camino off Highway 50. The ranch has specialty pies and baked goods that will have you drooling from miles away. They also have an elaborate outdoor kids play area, open year round and decorated for the season. And, of course, you can pick up a pumpkin or a gourd to go.

Once you’re in South Lake Tahoe, you can take a day trip on your vacation out to Corley Ranch, located in Gardnerville, about an hour south east of the City of SLT. Corley Ranch is a highly rated pumpkin patch with farm animals, produce to purchase, and a hay ride for the kids or kids at heart. There is a classic large barn, adorned for fall, and perfect for snapping memorable photos.


If you’re looking to carve a pumpkin and stay local, all the grocery stores in South Lake Tahoe have pumpkins available for purchase, as well as carving kits. Check out Safeway, Raley’s, or Grocery Outlet Bargain Market for a great deal on supplies and carve-able pumpkins.

Grab your pumpkin from the patch or the grocery store and bring it back to one of our fantastic family-friendly homes today. RnR Vacation Rentals would be happy to host your fall traditions year after year. Give us a click or call at 855-99-TAHOE today!


League to Save Lake Tahoe: Spooky Stormwater Fall Festival

October is a month to watch scary movies and get spooked by neighborhood decor. What’s spookier than the thought of our precious blue Lake Tahoe turning to murky grays and browns from stormwater runoff? Yikes!

No need to fear, Pipe Keepers and the League to Save Lake Tahoe are here! These modern day nature heroes are putting on an event to raise awareness and educate the community on how to help prevent stormwater runoff from ruining the lake.

The event is the League to Save Lake Tahoe Spooky Stormwater Fall Festival at the Sidellis Lake Tahoe Brewery and Restaurant, and it is bound to be a hauntingly good time. There will be family-friendly games, small bites provided, chances to win prizes, and the opportunity to chat with Pipe Keeper stormwater experts.

Who are these Pipe Keeper experts and what’s the deal with stormwater you ask? Well as the official Keep Tahoe Blue League to Save Lake Tahoe website puts it, “Pipe Keepers is a citizen science program to address the threat of stormwater pollution entering Lake Tahoe. Runoff from rain storms and snowmelt is the largest source of pollution that degrades lake clarity. League staff will train you to survey local neighborhoods and collect stormwater samples during rain and snowmelt events.” See full article here.

Grab your friends, bring the kids, and get ready for eerily educational night of fall fun!
