– Kick off your holiday shopping season in downtown Kirkland on November 26, 2016 by celebrating Small Business Saturday. Join the Kirkland City Council and local business owners for the reading of a proclamation on the corner of Lake St. and Park Lane at Noon in downtown Kirkland. Visit Kirkland’s the more than 60 independently-owned boutiques that are featuring day-of promotions. More information on Kirkland shopping can be found at www.explorekirkland.com
Small Business Saturday and Shop Small are efforts from American Express to promote shopping and dining at locally-owned, independent, small businesses in neighborhood business districts during the holiday season. The Shop Small campaign will last through December 24.
At 3:30 p.m. stroll over to Peter Kirk Park (202 Third St). Santa will be on hand while families enjoy the sounds of Geoffrey Castle and holiday productions by Studio East and Lake Washington High School. The City Council will be pouring hot chocolate and the Holiday tree will come to life in lights at 5 p.m. on the corner of 3rd and Main.
Parking is available at the City lots. There is also plenty of parking at City Hall (123 5th Ave.) and a free shuttle bus will bring you down the hill to all the events.
Don’t miss this chance to ring in the Holiday Season in beautiful Downtown Kirkland.
