SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - For those who want to avoid the madness of Black Friday, they can take advantage of Small Business Saturday and an event in North County is proving to be the largest in the area with nearly 40 businesses taking part.
The Leucadia 101 Main Street and more than 35 businesses along Leucadia’s N. Coast Hwy 101 corridor will be hosting Small Business Saturday November 28.
The day will kick off with a morning Bike N, Brunch where participants can take a tour of North Leucadia by bike, stopping for some free coffee and eat a special bottomless mimosa brunch at Le Papagayo. The bike ride starts at the Leucadia Roadside Park 866 N Coast Hwy 101 at 10:30 a.m.
Throughout the day shoppers can expect a festive atmosphere with live music, scavenger hunts, prizes, in store promotions and gifts in exchange for purchases. With each purchase, at participating businesses, participants will receive a raffle ticket which enters them to win $1000 in prizes from local Leucadia retailers.
