The Lake Tahoe Gatsby Picnic, 2013


You already espied a few photos from last weekend’s Gatsby picnic at Lake Tahoe, but here are a few more just for jollies…

The Lake Tahoe Gatsby is like the Oakland Gatsby, but in miniature.  It’s quite a charming little event, taking place at the Pope Mansion in Tallac park, South Shore of Tahoe, every August.  There are vendors selling vintage clothes and knicknackery, music (this year by a ukelele band), a car club (this year it was Dodges, last year Fords), a fashion show and tea, house tours, and the ever present Big Blue.  It is one of our favorite events of the season.

Dodge, oh yeah
