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 2, 2017, 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.
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 theme is "Ugly Christmas Sweater", and the Chamber cordially invites everyone who is entering the parade with a lighted exhibit to decorate and dress yourself around this theme.
Also, Santa Claus will be riding on the Chamber of Commerce 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.
If you'd like to enter a festive lighted entry into this years parade, show up at the Veteran's Park no later than 5 p.m. and check in with a Chamber member to save your spot in the parade lineup. We look forward to having you participate in our annual event.
