Don’t forget to mark your calendars because all the splendor of the holiday arrives on Main Street with the Magical Country Christmas between 5 and 7 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 3.
With so many spectacular happenings taking place in one evening, it’s hard to pick the top event, but one of the highlights for the younger folk is always the parade that features Santa’s Grand Entrance around 5:30 p.m. when the jolly, big guy dressed in red arrives on a Susanville Fire Engine.
If you’re interested in participating in the parade, the deadline for entries is tomorrow, Wednesday, Nov. 30.
All parade entries must be in keeping with the theme of Christmas.
Lighted entries are encouraged as this parade takes place at dark. No horse entries are permitted.
For more information, call the chamber at 257-4323.
Don’t forget the fireworks and Christmas Tree Lighting at 5:30 p.m., either.
Between 5 and 7 p.m., the evening also features live music and dance performances right in the middle of Main Street.
Caltrans closes Highway 36 for a couple of hours for the celebration at the request of the Susanville City Council.
Have you got a sweet tooth that needs attention?
The Lassen County Arts Council holds its annual Chocolate Festival from 5 to 7:30 p.m. in the former Teen Zone building at the corner of North Lassen and Main streets.
The homemade chocolates are always excellent and affordable, if you’re looking for a special holiday gift.
If you’re hungry for a little south of the border holiday faire, the Elks Lodge offers a Taco Feed from 5 to 8:30 p.m.
Uptown merchants also stay open late to offer special sales and promotions — helping everyone to get their holiday shopping done early.
And between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., the Lassen County Toys for Tots program will be accepting new and unwrapped gifts for local children in need at the Elks Lodge.
The Historic Uptown Susanville Association, Superior Products and the Sierra Radio Network also sponsor the Magical Country Christmas celebration.
I hope to see you there Saturday night!
