The 4th Annual Ta-hoe Nalu Paddle Festival takes place this weekend, August 21 & 22 at King's Beach in North Lake Tahoe. The two-day event features races for all ages and skill levels as well live concerts, a luau, and plenty of aloha spirit. The size and scope of the festival is testimony to the phenomenal rise in popularity of stand up paddling. Whereas the first Tahoe-Nalu race in 2007 included only 34 participants, organizers anticipate up to 600 paritcipants and over 3000 spectators to attend this year. $20,000 in cash prizes will be awarded.
