Provided to the Tribune

The Tahoe Tallac Association will host the Valhalla Holiday Faire today through Sunday in the Valhalla Grand Hall. The Valhalla Holiday Faire will feature holiday crafts and gift items, entertainment from choir groups featuring local school children and the Motley Madrigals. Seasonal treats and the spirit of the season will get you in the mood for the holiday. Admission is free. Free shuttle will be provided from Highway 89 to the Valhalla Grand Hall.

Approximately 30 of the finest crafters and the most exceptional holiday boutiques will be selling unique gifts, seasonal crafts and ornaments. Only the highest quality, handmade items will be on display. If you are looking for something special as a gift or for your home, this will be the place to find it. As a special treat, Father Christmas will be available for requests and posing for photos with the kids and will greet the public. Merry carolers from the Lake Tahoe Unified School District will entertain during the faire. The holiday music from the school district is sure to put a smile on your face.

Valhalla Grand Hall, a historic estate built in the 1920s is the perfect location for a holiday faire. The rustic building is the most exquisite location to celebrate the season. A magnificent 30-foot tree, sparkling white lights, a roaring fire in the massive stone fireplace and boughs of holly will deck the halls of Valhalla. Holiday treats like specialty cookies and chocolates and seasonal drinks like hot spiced cider, warm mulled wine and hot chocolate will be available while you shop.

Valhalla is located on the Tallac Historic Site which is three miles north of South Lake Tahoe on Highway 89, just past Historic Camp Richardson Resort. There will be free parking and free shuttle service from Highway 89. The Valhalla Holiday Faire is sponsored by the Tahoe Tallac Association, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit arts organization.
