Reno River Festival – Look for TMS, Keen and Outdoor Research!

Wednesday, May 4th, 2011

Today’s hydrologic outlook from NOAA: …SPRING SNOWMELT TO CAUSE EASTERN SIERRA AND WESTERN NEVADA RIVERS AND STREAMS TO RISE SIGNIFICANTLY THROUGH FRIDAY…

That’s good news for the 8th annual Reno River Festival, May 6–8, which kicks off in a big way on Friday. Reno River Fest is one of our favorite events of the year since it ushers in a whole new season of outdoor fun for us. This year, we’re joining forces with Keen and Outdoor Research at our booth so be sure to stop by.

If you’ve never been to Reno River Festival, then this is your year to come. Temps are forecasted to be in the 70s with sunny skies and there’s loads of fun and new events on tap.

The highlight of the festival is, of course, the Truckee River, where open freestyle, boatercross and stand-up paddleboarding competitions will take place. Plus, there are free whitewater clinics, a kick-off party with ‘80s 2-tone ska band English Beat in the park on Friday night at 8pm, food and beer gardens, the Run Amuck fun run with a 60-foot mud pit in the course, the Humans in Motion short video contest, a Home Brew competition, yoga in the park each morning and live music all weekend long. View the full Reno River Fest schedule online. Some 40,000 people come to the festival during the long weekend, so it’s definitely the place to be!

We’ll be selling Keen water shoes/sandals along with Outdoor Research hats and dry bags at our tent. Don’t miss out on our Reno River Fest promotions, including a FREE Pair of Socks with every pair of Keens purchased, a raffle in which you can win FREE Keen sandals, and more giveaways just for stopping by. See you at the river!

Fireworks

It’s July 1st, just days from summer’s most popular holiday. Do you know what you’re doing this weekend? Put Lake Tahoe’s North Shore on your agenda and join us in Kings Beach. Tahoe Mountain Sports is staying open late (until 9 p.m.) on Saturday July 3, and we’re fully stocked with all your beach-going, fireworks-watching needs. Here’s where we’ll be hanging for the holiday, and what we’re taking with us:

FRIDAY July 2: The Music on the Beach summer concert series kicks off with local favorite the Blues Monsters in downtown Kings Beach, behind the playground area. We’ll be dancing to their combo of funk, jazz, blues and R&B starting at 6:30 p.m.

[our gear] Keen shoes that won’t slip on the dance floor but are comfy and cool

SATURDAY July 3: We’ll hit the beach, head back to the shop for the pre-fireworks rush, then get shore-side again for the official July 3rd Fireworks Celebration. The VIP viewing deck party at the North Tahoe Event Center starts at 7 p.m. (doors at 6:30), with music from Under the Radar with Serina Dawn. The fireworks go off at 9:30 p.m. Don’t forget we’re open until 9 p.m. if you need us!
