Noel Nights at Northstar California

Noel Nights at Northstar California has truly become a landmark celebration. This Lake Tahoe event centers around a 35-foot Christmas tree located in the heart of Northstar Village.  From 5pm to 8pm, village residents and local shops pull out all of the stops to make Noel Nights the thing to do in Lake Tahoe.  A great experience for all members of the family, Noel Nights features ice skating until 9pm, a variety of fire pits to gather around and keep warm, s’mores, holiday carolers, and great shopping deals. InnerRythms kicks off this Lake Tahoe event at 6:30 on December 6th followed by the lighting of the 35-foot Christmas tree at 7:15.

Afterwards, there are a wide variety of family-friendly activities. Visitors can enjoy complementary One Horse Sleigh Rides every Thursday of Noel Nights from 5 to 8 pm. It’s undoubtedly the best way to see all that the village has to offer.  While on that sleigh ride, visitors often cross paths with The Great Basin Carolers, a collection of singers who perform all of the holiday classics as they wander through Northstar Village.  Of course, Santa always makes an appearance at this Lake Tahoe event. He will be available for photos every Thursday from 6-8pm. And for those looking to write their best Christmas wishes, Northstar offers ample opportunities.
