New Years Eve at Lake Tahoe has always been a GIANT party. I’m sure this year will be no different. Local law enforcement is estimating 45,000 people to jam the Stateline area. As usual they will close Highway 50 Thursday night and reopen it when the revelers have moved into warmer surroundings. The Nevada side of the lake will enforce a 12am curfew for those under 18 and the California side will enforce the 10pm curfew for the same age group.
For those families not interested in the kids seeing the “street scene” here is an option:
New Year’s Eve Kids’ Night Out Starting at 7pm Tahoe Gymnastics 867 Eloise Ave Suite B. Children will celebrate with games, an obstacle course, trampoline time, pizza, arts and crafts, and a midnight countdown complete with hats, horns, noisemakers, streamers, and balloons. Prices range from $40 to $100 for overnight care. Call for more info and to pre-register 530-544-7314.
