FOURTH OF JULY in Incline Village
Fourth of July in Incline Village is always a great time. Many residents decorate their homes and sport head-to-toe patriotic attire. In years prior, we’ve relied on the festivities hosted by Red, White and Tahoe Blue in order to celebrate with our families and friends. Red, White and Tahoe Blue was dissolved as an organization earlier this year and now our festivities will be hosted by our Incline Village and Crystal Bay communities. We hope to see you all at Lake Tahoe this coming week.
Incline Village, located in beautiful North Lake Tahoe, is one of the best places to spend the 4th of July holiday. It is the busiest time of year in Tahoe so be prepared and plan ahead to make sure you don’t miss out on the fun. There are a lot of fun events to help you and your family celebrate Independence Day at the Incline Village Beaches and surrounding areas.
Remember, access to all Incline Village Beaches (Ski Beach Incline Beach, Burnt Cedar Beach) is restricted to valid IVGID Beach Access Picture Pass holders and their guests only
