The Lassen County Chamber of Commerce and some hard working volunteers spent the Monday before Thanksgiving decorating uptown for the 14th annual Magical Country Christmas Celebration with holiday displays and the big 40-foot artificial tree at the top of Susanville’s Main Street, just below the Elks Lodge.

The Chamber volunteers were assisted by Adam Hull and Sam Tucker from LMUD who used one of the utility’s bucket trucks to put the top of the tree in place.

The tree will be lit up with a thousand lights as Santa makes his Grand Entrance at the end of the Christmas Parade of Lights during the event.

The gala holiday celebration takes place this Saturday, December 7th, along Main Street in uptown Susanville, complete with live entertainment, the Christmas Parade of Lights, Santa’s Grand Entrance and fireworks at the Elk’s Lodge!

The chamber’s yearly christmas party has become tradition in Susanville, with nearly two thousand people expected to show up to help welcome Santa to town.

The party starts at 5:00p.m. on Main Street, which will be closed to traffic for the event, and around 5:15 live entertainment begins.

Businesses in uptown will stay open late so you can browse and shop while getting into the festive spirit of the evening.

At 6:00p.m. the Magical Country Christmas parade will start, with floats, dancers and participants moving up Main Street to the tree in front of the Elk’s Lodge. The big finale of the parade will be the arrival of Santa, the lighting of the tree and fireworks!

There will also be food, drink and plenty of hot chocolate and warm beverages to help warm you up.

If you need more information you can call the Lassen County Chamber at 257-4323.
