In addition, the Lights of the Lake Fourth of July fireworks show has been cancelled, the Tahoe Douglas Visitors Authority announced on Wednesday.
“We want to continue to provide memorable experiences for our community with free live music at Lakeview Commons. However, the public health and overall safety of our community comes first,” Rob Giustina, the owner of On Course Events posted in a press statement. “We remain committed to our community and as soon as State, County and City regulations permit, our team is ready to produce live concerts once again.”
El Dorado and Butte are the first two counties to be permitted to enter Stage 2, under California Gavin Newsom’s guidelines, meaning dine-in restaurants and stores can open.
“It’s a good day for El Dorado County, its residents and its economy,” said Board of Supervisors Chair Brian Veerkamp on the county’s website on Tuesday. “We’re very happy for our business owners, their employees and patrons that we are in the front of the State’s approval line so they can re-establish their livelihood and return to some semblance of normalcy.”
