Kentucky Derby Day and Cinco de Mayo: Lake Tahoe Weekend Fun
Posted by: Squaw Valley Lodge
Although some are celebrating Cinco de Mayo on Saturday evening (perhaps to avoid that margarita hangover on Monday morning) there's always the historic Kentucky Derby Day on Saturday, May 4 that's cause for celebration! You technically don't have to choose between bourbon and tequila: mint julep or margarita? In fact, we have just the spot for you to celebrate both on this very warm, spring weekend in May: River Ranch Lodge in Tahoe City/Alpine Meadows!
Throw on your Derby hat and heels for Saturday's festivities and trade them in for a sombrero on Sunday.
