On this date, 83 years ago, it was announced that a new dance pavilion was planned for Bass Lake.

“First, let me tell you the pavilion announcement was being made on this date in 1928,” said Ted Hayes. “Yes, the pavilion was to be added to the current one at the Taggart Hotel. It should be ready for the summer months of 1929. And manager Bogan says Dorothy Bush’s Blue Dog band has already been secured for the opening weekend.
