Whether you’re kicking off your holiday shopping or are wishing to dine out this weekend, several local businesses will be having special offers as part of Panora’s Annual Holiday Premier.

This is the 15th year for the event which is organized by Kandi Meinecke of Britches & Bows Country Store. Meinecke says the event’s purpose is to bring people to town and shop local, as she says this impacts Panora greatly, “We definitely need the outside public coming in. We have a beautiful lake, but during the winter people start to dwindle. So this is just a nice kick off to the holidays, and people remember that we’re here and how many retailers we do have and just wanting them to come to town.”

You can pick up a card listing all of the weekend deals at Britches & Bows Country Store and at the other participating businesses: Bella Sorella Boutique, Ben’s Five and Dime, Crafty’s Coffee & Gifts, The Funky Zebras, Hometown Foods, and Los Altos Mexican Restaurant. The event takes place tonight from 6-9 p.m. and it lasts all day Friday and Saturday.
