SHOPPING!! FAMILY FUN!!! NIGHT LIFE!!!
Now that the turkey has been carved and everyone has filled their bellies with very nice delectables. (Boy did I stuff myself, just like the bird) Time to start thinking about the upcoming Holiday Season. What better way to get that much needed shopping or just to kick back and relax than the Alpine Village of Lake Placid. Downtown is transformed into a winter wonderland complete with boutique shops, delightful restaurants & people filled with holiday cheer.
This year Lake Placid is hosting the first ever HOLIDAY VILLAGE STROLL on the weekend of December 5th through the 7th. RICH YOUR NEWSCASTER is here to assure you that there will be plenty of fun and excitement for everyone in your family. Many local businesses and resorts in the area are participating in this festive event. There will be plenty of local discounts at all the shopping boutiques in downtown Lake Placid for all of ye’ ole bustling holiday shoppers.
So what are all the festivities you are wondering?
There is free public skating at the Olympic Oval from 7 to 9pm on Friday which will feature holiday characters, carolers, hot chocolate and a bonfire. (Very exciting indeed) On Saturday the “big guy” Santa will be arriving on fire truck at Mid’s Park on Main St. The children can sit and sip on hot chocolate with Santa (gotta sit on his lap to get my X-mas list in..hehe) Also, at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts in the afternoon there will be free holiday kids movies. Did not forget about the adults!! In the evening there will be plenty of live music and entertainment at the local restaurants and pubs. For further information about this spectacular event please visit www.lakeplacid.com.
To top off the weekend, on Sunday morning, the children can sit down with Santa at our very own restaurant CHARLIE’S and enjoy breakfast with Santa. They will enjoy making crafts with his elves as well.
Yes, Lake Placid is the place to enjoy in the upcoming week for pre-Holiday cheer and excitement. Please ask us about the great HOLIDAY STROLL PACKAGE that we have for this upcoming event!!! (You will not want to miss it…or at least you should not miss it!) Okay! Time for this elf to hit the pavement and start buying gifts as Christmas will be here before I know it. Bye for now and see you all at the Holiday Stroll!!!!
