The Lassen County Chamber of Commerce and some hard working volunteers spent the week decorating uptown for this Saturday’s Magical Country Christmas with holiday displays in Pancera Plaza and a brand new 40-foot artificial tree at the top of Susanville’s Main Street, just below the Elks Lodge.

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

Don’t forget to check out our video of the tree construction… You can see the entire assembly process in just three minutes with our SusanvilleStuff Video FeatureClick here to see the video.

The gala holiday celebration takes place this Saturday 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 December 6th 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 new 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!

Temperatures are predicted to be on the cold side, and Chamber of Commerce director Patti Hagata reminds people to bundle up and dress for the cold. 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 or click here and visit them online.

Mrs. West and students from Long Valley Charter School’s Susanville Resource Center came to watch as the Christmas tree took shape.
