The Chamber Event Will Take Place December 6
By SARAH SHMERLING | Editor-in-Chief
Returning for the second year in a row, the Pacific Palisades Chamber of Commerce will host its annual Christmas Stroll on Friday, December 6, from 5 to 8 p.m.
“Come join in the fun, family, walkable, festive shopping experience throughout the town of Pacific Palisades,” the Chamber shared ahead of the stroll.
Similar to last year’s inaugural event—which hosted around 250 guests—each attendee will receive a map, divided into three sections with all of the participating businesses. As guests walk and shop at featured businesses, they will collect stamps.
At the end of their stroll, attendees with two stamps from each section can turn in their map to enter a drawing for $1,000 in prizes, as well as a chance to win $1,000,000 on a lottery ticket and free parking at Palisades Village.
“We recommend you visit at least two businesses in each section for a real taste of our town,” the Chamber explained. “Businesses will be serving refreshments and lots of fun.”
This year’s stroll features longtime community favorite shops, including elysewalker, Special Moments, BOCA, Collections Antiques & Accessories, Marc Michel Eyewear Studio, Pharmaca, Denise Carolyn, Gift Garden and David Tishbi Jewelry. Participating real estate businesses include Amalfi Estates, Coldwell Banker and Rodeo Realty.
Those looking for a bite to eat during the stroll can do so at Kayndaves, Hank’s, Porta Via Palisades or The Yogurt Shoppe.
And those looking to visit new arrivals in town, Elizabeth Lamont and Valentina, will have the chance at this year’s stroll.
Other participating locations include Faherty, Michele Michel International Hair Studio and U.S. Bank.
The second part of the event is each participating business will have a decorated Christmas tree outside of their location. Attendees can vote for their favorite trees, and the two winning businesses will receive a prize.
This year’s stroll is sponsored by RLB Architecture, Maria Elena Tapia, DDS & Associates, Caruso, Pepperdine University and Sarah Knauer of Amalfi Estates.
The next Chamber event will be a Holiday Mixer at The Golden Bull on Tuesday, December 10, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. with hors d’oeuvres and beverages.
