20-30 Club members prepare for Carson Valley Days

Staff Reports

The 96th Annual Carson Valley Days is coming June 8-11. This year's theme is "German Festival."

The Carson Valley Active 20-30 Club No. 85 is hosting this year's affair with a large weekend agenda.

"We've been hosting this event for over 50 years," said event chairman Jeremy Davidson. "This is an event not only for adults, but for their entire family. There's something for everyone."

This year, the men's club will bring a carnival for the weekend festivities filled with rides for all ages. The carnival will begin June 8 and continue through June 11.

On June 8, the club will offer a "Buddy Night" with 2 for 1 armbands for the carnival.

The rest of the weekend, armbands will be $20. Armbands can be purchased early at Greater Nevada Credit Union and Napa Auto Parts in Gardnerville. Pre-sale tickets will be $15 if purchased prior to June 9.

The Unauthorized Rolling Stones will play 5-9 p.m. in Lampe Park on June 9 and 10.

Each night of entertainment will feature music and impersonators of Janis Joplin and Tina Turner, with the Unautorized Rolling Stones capping off the evening festivities.

The parade will start 9 a.m. June 10 at Minden Park, head east on Esmeralda to Highway 395 then south on Highway 395 to finish at Lampe Park.

Businesses are encouraged to contact the club if they'd like to participate.

There will be a $1 parking charge at Herbig Park located across from Lampe Park following the parade on Saturday. Parking for the rest of the event will remain the same.

A craft show, various activities for children and live music will take place throughout Saturday and Sunday at Lampe Park. Craft booths are also available for the weekend.

The Carson Valley Active 20-30 Club is asking for donations to help make the event a success with proceeds going to special needs children in Douglas County.

"I believe this is the biggest event of the year in Gardnerville, and we encourage everyone to check it out. It's always been a lot of fun," said Davidson.

Carson RV is the grand sponsor. A raffle will take place throughout the weekend with giveaways such as a gas grill from Minden Grill Co.y, a custom made swing, as well as several gift certificates to local businesses.
