The Alturas Chamber of Commerce is proud to host the annual Fandango Days Parade and Celebration during the first Saturday in July. A parade down Main Street in Alturas kicks off the event followed by an afternoon of family fun and entertainment at the Veteran's Memorial Park where everyone can enjoy plenty of food and lots of other community activities to round out the remainder of the day.
The Alturas Chamber of Commerce is proud to have selected Dr. Edward and Carol Richert as our 2019 Fandango Days Parade Grand Marshals and will represent our yearly celebration on July 6, 2019. Dr. Edward Richert and his wife Carol have been instrumentally dedicated for many years towards helping our community grow through their leadership and support of various organizations. Their strong commitment and giving nature did not go unnoticed, and that is why they were chosen to be the 2019 Alturas Chamber of Commerce Fandango Days Grand Marshals.
