Escape The Mall Madness
Black Friday officially kicks off a shopping season of deal-hungry mobs, shopping mall mayhem and megastore madness. If lining up at midnight after Thanksgiving, grasping for the latest gadget and endlessly circling the parking lot while stalking a parking slot aren’t exactly your idea of a fun way to kick off the season, never fear – there is an alternative.
Avalon, California, and the Catalina Chamber of Commerce invite you to Shop at Home for the holidays and with a Catalina Island vacation, it can be your home too. Shop at Home Night kicks off with a tree lighting on Crescent Avenue – how can you go wrong watching a giant Christmas tree brought to light with a backdrop of Avalon Harbor and the Casino Ballroom. Avalon’s quaint shops will all be open late that night, offering refreshments, shopping discounts and holiday cheer. Strolling carolers add to the holiday ambiance, which also includes the opportunity for photos with Santa in exchange for canned food for the local food drive.
Join the 20th Annual Shop at Home fun this year on Saturday, Dec. 7. Visit www.CatalinaChamber.com for more information.
