What Are Your Plans For Awesome Autumn?

"Plumas County's Awesome Autumn has spectacular fall colors that dazzle year after year." from

Fall draws many leaf peepers to our region year after year.  We predict this year we may see even more people traveling through to enjoy our awesome colors.  

The Chamber is asking our businesses to share your plans for Autumn.  Are you bringing in special merchandise? Changing up your menu? Planning a promotion or promotional event? 

Share with us here so we can highlight you in our next edition of Town Chatter.

The “Big C”, i.e. cancellation, has hit the Twilight Party in White scheduled for September 3.  This was to be the first year for this end of summer celebration, and as much as we were hoping we could make it happen, the well-being of the community is our priority. We also wanted to be sure that all who attended had a fabulous time and all our generous donors and sponsors were well showcased.

Thank you and much appreciation to all who supported the event and we promise the celebration will go on next year to help raise money for The Town Plaza.
