Beginning at 1:30 on Saturday Dec. 1, guests will gather in the warm and welcoming setting of Riffe’s Meeting House next to the Hotel. It’s the perfect way to celebrate the holidays and fun for all ages! Each participant will receive an assembled, undercorated gingerbread house. The Tallman will provide the royal icing, candy, tips and techniques so guests can create their very own gingerbread masterpiece. Holiday cookies, hot cocoa and cider will be served. The cost is $40 per Gingerbread house. Reservations are required and seating is limited. Please call the Hotel at 707-275-2244 ext. 0.
Also that afternoon from 2:30 to 4:30, Santa will be holding forth in the Tallman Parlor. A professional photographer will be there to record the event. All are welcome to visit with Santa and photos will be available for purchase at $10 apiece.
And – that evening is the annual Upper Lake Holiday Lights Parade down Main St. beginning at 6:30. Our favorite carolers, the My Divas singing group, will be in costume in the Tallman parade entry and will be going from table to table in the Blue Wing during dinner hour.
