Are you spending Christmas or New Year’s Eve in North Lake Tahoe? We have made it easy for you to get into the holiday spirit with our list of some holiday happenings in North Lake Tahoe.
The Northstar village becomes a winter wonderland, with ice skating, caroling, sleigh rides, and pictures with Santa for the first three Fridays in December.
Come to one or all of the many events hosted in Squaw Valley for Merry Days and Holly Nights. This event offers everything from the Tahoe Symphony Orchestra’s performance of Handel’s Messiah to sleigh rides and ice sculpture gardens in the Olympic Village.
That’s right–Santa likes skiing too! He’ll be making an appearance at a number of Tahoe ski resorts, and this is your opportunity to hit the slopes with Santa Claus!
New Year’s Eve:
Ring in the New Year in style with fireworks shows using the backdrop of some of your favorite ski resorts.
A great activity for families or for couples, the Snowshoe Tour starts at 4PM and ends at 6PM with hot chili and drinks at the Trailside Bar. This is your opportunity to enjoy a guided sunset snowshoe experience in the Sierras, and is the perfect way to end 2016.
Your favorite venue in Lake Tahoe is sure to be featuring live music on New Year’s Eve, whether it be a favorite local band or a bigger name for a NYE bash. The Crystal Bay Casino is located just a short drive from The Franciscan, and will be featuring The Mississippi Allstars for their New Year’s Eve party.
Enjoy drinks, live music, s’mores, and more at Homewood, located on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe. Take your last run of 2016 with stunning lake views, followed by a champagne toast and a party with fun activities for adults and for kids.
We hope that you will spend your holiday with us here at The Franciscan, and that this helps you to plan a truly memorable holiday season. Cheers to you all!
