Join the Wooden Boat Challenge

The fourth annual Arts For the Schools fundraiser, Wooden Boat Challenge 2019, is on Sept. 14 at Commons Beach in Tahoe City from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Watch teams of four make wooden boats without power tools and race them on Lake Tahoe — for ultimate bragging rights. Construction of the boats is until 2 p.m. Races begin at 3 p.m.

A family festival will include live music, a beer garden, food and kid activities. Admission is free. RSVP online. |
