It's beginning to look a lot like...those panicky few days left to shop before Christmas! Downtown Laconia merchants are up to the challenge of your final shopping list, and there's so much to choose from! If you need a snack or a meal, did you know that there are seven restaurants within an easy walk of the center of Downtown? There is something for everyone. Remember that the dollars you spend locally stay local, and you support your neighbors who live and work right here in the Lakes Region.

There is so much going on in Downtown Laconia this Saturday! The start of the Frozen 5K, sponsored by MC Cycle and Sport on Main Street is the start of the Open House activities at many downtown locations. Merchants are offering deals and discounts, refreshments and more. It's a great opportunity to do your holiday shopping with local independent businesses as well as the chance to support some great local charities.
Did you know that you can have lunch and create a painting at The Downtown Deli? Artist Larry Frates is doing a Paint Along Lunch, and Elisa is already planning the Deli's famous Chicken Rice Soup as well as an Apple Squash alternative, and Drew is making his famous chili. Elisa's also experimenting with new cookie recipes, including a beer and bacon chocolate ganache creation that's amazing! The Studio on Canal Street will have refreshments all day, live music by Bob McCarthy in the afternoon and complimentary chair massage by Nancy Lee in the morning. You can enjoy a wine tasting and fresh hot roasted chestnuts at All My Life Jewelers, and Jim Daubenspeck is making his delightful leather shoe bell decorations again this year. Visit LaBelle's Shoe Repair for them, and to say hello to Jim! Take some time to stroll around and visit the new businesses and old, enjoy the holiday cheer, help a neighbor and support local independent business all in one convenient location.
Downtown Laconia: it's Main Street - and more!
