The Kalispell Downtown Association is kicking off the holiday season with the annual Kalispell Art Walk & Holiday Stroll.
This celebration will be on Friday, Dec. 6 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. and people will be able to start holiday shopping -- and also enter to win one of several $100 gift certificates for downtown participating locations.
Participants are able to pick up walking cards the day of the event at participating businesses. Over 35 local businesses will be open for shopping. There will also be music at some locations and something to eat and drink too.
The entire event is a way for community members to enjoy an evening while supporting local businesses in downtown Kalispell.
The Crown of the Continent Choir will be singing traditional Christmas carols at 6 p.m. followed by a Christmas tree lighting, which will take place during the song fest at Depot Park, hosted by the Kalispell Chamber of Commerce.
