Kids absolutely love this festival, and will be busy checking out all of the attractions, games and crafts in the kids carnival zone. Unlimited wristbands will be available for $15. An unlimited wristband includes rides on the Log Jammer – our new 65 foot long inflatable slide – climbing on the Rockwall, finding your way through our maze, access to the moon bouncer and target practice at the archery station.
We also have other fun activities that are not included in the wristband package including a Tahoe Donner Tie Dye Station. Purchase a Tahoe Donner T-shirt for $10 or bring your own white clothing to dye for $5. Other activities and festival features include face painting, recipe contest, pony rides, caramel apple making station, kettle corn, cotton candy, bobbing for apples, and exploring the pumpkin patch. Fees vary for different activities.
We suggest parking at Trout Creek Recreation Center and taking the free shuttle down to Northwoods Clubhouse. Or if you want to ride your bike to the event, the shuttle busses will have bike racks to take you and your bike back up to Trout Creek for the ride home.
