North Tahoe Business Association is beyond excited about the upcoming holiday season. We invite our members, community, and visitors to participate in giving North Lake Tahoe an EXTRA HOLIDAY GLOW! Bring your festive spirit to our already magical community and get involved in one or both of our upcoming programs:


Adopt a street light pole to be lit year-round bringing cheerful illumination to the streets of downtown Kings Beach.

Let’s Light Up the Streets of Kings Beach! Support North Tahoe Business Association and our community by adopting a pole this holiday season. This program will help light up all 85 poles in downtown Kings Beach, keeping our town bright and festive for the holidays and all year round!
