Thanksgiving weekend marks the return of the annual Tahoe Donner Light up the Night event! A family favorite, this special gathering gets everyone in the mood for the upcoming holiday season. Please join us at the Lodge Restaurant & Pub, from 5 – 8 p.m., on Saturday, November 24.
Enjoy caroling, games, crafts, hot chocolate, s’mores, live entertainment and a visit from Santa! Guests are encouraged to bring their own cameras for photos with Santa from 6:30 – 8 p.m.
The holidays are also a time to think about giving back to those less fortunate. We will be selling raffle tickets to benefit Project MANA, a hunger relief agency serving more than 26,000 individuals in North Lake Tahoe and Truckee communities each year. The raffle will be announced at 7:30 p.m. Please bring your canned food items to donate. Project MANA will have three food collection bins on-site.
One special child in attendance will be selected to flip the switch and light the 2012 Tahoe Donner Christmas tree behind the Lodge Restaurant & Pub. Be sure to get your tree lighting ticket when you arrive and listen to hear if your number is called at 5:55 p.m.
Tahoe Donner Downhill Ski Area will sell winter gear at prices up to 60 percent off. Check out jackets, fleece, t-shirts and kids helmets from Smith, Columbia and Tipsy.
