Candy Dance takes over Genoa
September 29, 2012
All routes through Genoa are closed for the 92nd annual Candy Dance Craft Faire. The town reopens after 5 p.m.
Best parking for the craft fair will be found by taking Genoa or Muller lanes into town. Parking is $5. The smallest parking lot located at the Genoa Cemetery on Jacks Valley Road fills up during the morning. Turning around can be difficult when cars are parked on both sides of the road.
The walk to the shuttle can be a half-mile or more. A less expensive, and perhaps less stressful, alternative is to take a shuttle from the Carson Valley Inn or Douglas High School in Minden for $2. First shuttle leaves Minden at 9 a.m. Last one leaves Genoa at 5 p.m. both days.
Several groups hold fundraisers during the event, including the Masons who serve breakfast and the Genoa Volunteer Fire Department, which serves Italian sausage sandwiches. A jail will be set up by Families for Effective Autism Treatment to raise money for the cause.
