Kentucky Derby Day and Cinco de Mayo: Lake Tahoe Weekend Fun

Kentucky Derby Hat

Although some are celebrating Cinco de Mayo on Saturday evening (perhaps to avoid that margarita hangover on Monday morning) there’s always the historic Kentucky Derby Day on Saturday, May 4 that’s cause for celebration! You technically don’t have to choose between bourbon and tequila: mint julep or margarita? In fact, we have just the spot for you to celebrate both on this very warm, spring weekend in May: River Ranch Lodge in Tahoe City/Alpine Meadows!

Throw on your Derby hat and heels for Saturday’s festivities and trade them in for a sombrero on Sunday.

Kentucky Derby Day at River Ranch Lodge, May 4, 11:30am-4:00pm

Wear your best Derby Hat and win a prize! Bar opens at 11:30 a.m. for pre-race coverage. River Ranch Lodge will serve traditional Derby fare including Kentucky Hot Browns and Mint Juleps: the official drink of the race!

Cinco de Mayo Celebration at River Ranch Lodge, May 5, 4:30pm-8:30pm

Noel Nights at Northstar California

Noel Nights at Northstar California has truly become a landmark celebration. This Lake Tahoe event centers around a 35-foot Christmas tree located in the heart of Northstar Village.  From 5pm to 8pm, village residents and local shops pull out all of the stops to make Noel Nights the thing to do in Lake Tahoe.  A great experience for all members of the family, Noel Nights features ice skating until 9pm, a variety of fire pits to gather around and keep warm, s’mores, holiday carolers, and great shopping deals. InnerRythms kicks off this Lake Tahoe event at 6:30 on December 6th followed by the lighting of the 35-foot Christmas tree at 7:15.

Afterwards, there are a wide variety of family-friendly activities. Visitors can enjoy complementary One Horse Sleigh Rides every Thursday of Noel Nights from 5 to 8 pm. It’s undoubtedly the best way to see all that the village has to offer.  While on that sleigh ride, visitors often cross paths with The Great Basin Carolers, a collection of singers who perform all of the holiday classics as they wander through Northstar Village.  Of course, Santa always makes an appearance at this Lake Tahoe event. He will be available for photos every Thursday from 6-8pm. And for those looking to write their best Christmas wishes, Northstar offers ample opportunities.
