Winter Fest 2018 - December 1st
Website maintained by Golden Rose Productions - Alturas, CA 96101
The Alturas Chamber of Commerce sponsors the annual Winter Fest which celebrates the start of the Christmas Holiday season. This years event will held on December 1, 2018, so mark it on your calendar to attend.
A "Parade of Lights" kicks off the festivity starting at the Veteran's Memorial Park at 5:30 p.m. and concludes at the Chamber Park on Main Street next to Plumas Bank. If you are entering an exhibit in the parade you must show up at the Veteran's Park at 5 p.m. to save your spot in the parade lineup.
A tree lighting ceremony, Holiday music (provided by Emcee Harry Boulade), a bonfire, a live nativity scene and plenty of hotdogs and hot chocolate round out the nights event. Santa Claus always shows up to meet and greet the children and to spread the Holiday cheer to everyone in attendance.
This years chosen theme is "Cartoon Christmas". If you're entering an exhibit into the parade, please decorate it to the theme and light it up for the public to enjoy.
Also, Santa Claus will be riding on a float this year, so please don't duplicate by having a Santa dressed up on your parade exhibit. We don't want to confuse the kids when Santa arrives at the Chamber of Commerce Park to greet them.
