Labor Day Fireworks at Gar Woods Carnelian Bay - 2018

Ready to celebrate the end of summer?  Check out the 6th Annual Labor Day fireworks show at Gar Woods restaurant (Carnelian Bay beaches) in Carnelian Bay, California this Sunday, September 2, 2018.

While the Labor Day weekend is the unofficial end of our summer season, the fireworks event at Gar Woods will send it off with a big beautiful bang!

You may know Gar Woods for their great lakefront restaurant dining, or for their stunning lake views while enjoying your favorite beverage (perhaps their world-famous “Wet Woody” drink).

Now it is known for their spectacular Labor Day fireworks show, and it is a great show!

We've gone just about every year, and the show is really good.  

Get there early enough so you can find a parking spot (if you live near-by you can walk), and a good spot on the Carnelian Bay public beaches, or along the Gar Woods pier.   

In the past we've brought along our lawn chairs and just sat back and watch the sky light up with color by our car.

At this time of year,  you don't have the big 4th of July crowds, so it doesn't take long to find a spot to park, and when it's over, you won't spend a lot of time in traffic getting home making this is an easy event to get to and watch.

If you want to make an evening out of it, make a dinner reservation at Gar Woods at 530-546-3366 and watch the show from the restaurant!

It may seem that our Lake Tahoe  outdoor fun and events are about to come to an end, but that just isn't true.

Our fall season is one of the best and with so many upcoming fall events (can anyone say Truckee wine walk, or Oktoberfest?) in September and early October, our Tahoe fun will just come with a light sweater, or jacket!

The fall season in Lake Tahoe is one of my favorite times of the year.  Get ready to make your travel plans to be here in the area to enjoy more of what the greater North Lake Tahoe - Truckee area is known for, an amazing lifestyle!

Here are the Event Details:

During the evening the North Lake Tahoe student athletes will be selling items to raise money for the North Tahoe Sports Programs, so while the event is free, dig deep and either buy something for sale, or just make a donation!

This just one more fun thing to do here in North Lake Tahoe this weekend!
