ORLAND, Calif. - One of the impacts of the Camp Fire is the cancellation of the 2018 Avenue of Lights at the Glenn County Fairgrounds in Orland. One of the Red Cross Evacuation Shelters was set up at the Fairgrounds in November, and that prevented volunteers from setting up more than a mile of Christmas lights that draw thousands of people every year.

The Orland Historical and Cultural Society hosts the event, and members decided a dose of holiday cheer is still in order this year, so they have brought back The North Pole Lodge - the popular stopping point at the end of the Light Tour.

Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Dec.14-16 from 4 - 9 p.m. you can visit the "Lodge" in the Arts and Crafts Building at the fairgrounds.   

There, you will find beautifully decorated Christmas trees by the community, along with a raffle, snack bar and photos with Santa for just $5.

Sponsors who help make it happen include Bambauer Towing, Redding Bank of Commerce, Tri Counties Bank and West Mitsubishi.

The Glenn County Fairgrounds is located at Yolo and Woodward Streets in Orland.
