Event in Kings Beach promotes local shopping

North Shore residents can again this year get all their holiday shopping accomplished in one stop all while supporting local businesses.The North Tahoe Business Association, the Boys & Girls Club of North Lake Tahoe, and the North Tahoe Public Utility District will sponsor a Holiday Fair and Tree Lighting Ceremony Friday in Kings Beach that showcases local businesses and their wares. Shopping local sure does help our community, said Lola Owen, owner of LakeSide Gallery and Gifts in Kings Beach, which will be at the event, along with Jai Yen, Tahoe Mountain Sports, and other businesses. In addition to buying gifts, participants at the free event can witness the annual tree lighting in front of the North Tahoe Community Conference Center, and children can ask Santa Claus for gifts. The Boys & Girls Club of North Lake Tahoe will provide caroling, hot chocolate and cookies, and a performance from its hip-hop troupe. Get an early jump on your shopping and see what the community has to offer, said Kali Kopley of the North Tahoe Business Association. A storefront display contest is also being sponsored by the business association for local businesses from Carnelian Bay to Crystal Bay, with the storefronts to be lit by Friday.
