A Magical Country Christmas celebration coming this Saturday
Magical Country Christmas Committee
On Saturday, Dec. 2, the second annual Old Fashioned Country Christmas celebration will be in Susanville. There are a lot of events planned for that day and evening. There will be a matinee performance of the “Messiah” at the Methodist Church and a matinee at Sierra Theatre featuring children's movies.
That afternoon there will be spectacular holiday performances by a wide range of our area’s local talent. The Roop Street Strings will also be on hand with festive holiday music. There will be specialty food vendors on the sidewalks throughout the Uptown area. Plus, Primo Deli, Kookies by Katy, and the Elks Lodge will serve wonderful warm goodies.
Santa will arrive on a fire truck to assist with the lighting of the Christmas tree. Once there, look for Santa to be throwing out candy to the children. Main Street will be closed from Weatherlow Street to the top of Main Street from 5-7 p.m. The lighting of the spectacular tree will be at 6 p.m.
The Lassen County Arts Council is once again hosting the Chocolate Festival at the Hotel Mt. Lassen from 3-8 p.m.
Lassen County Search and Rescue will be accepting new toys for the Toys for Tots program at Willits Motors.
These are just a few of the events that will be going on that day. The Christmas committee has a few more tricks up their sleeve so to speak. Did I mention there would also be a craft fair at the fairgrounds that day, too?
We hope to see everyone come out and enjoy the Old Fashioned Christmas Celebration.
