We Need Your Support!

Our Fireworks Committee Chair Jay Sableman is planning to work with Brett Womack of Almanor Dock Supply to  build a barge for upcoming fireworks shows. The Lake Almanor Area Chamber is looking into ideas and activities that can help fund the fireworks. We are looking for ideas and input as well as involvement. If you would like to help us continue this tradition connect with us and sign up to volunteer. 

It takes $20,000 to light the skies over Lake Almanor.
Help us make it happen again next year.
