Al Gray Lighted Parade

A great big Thank you to the Fortuna Chamber of Commerce, Renee Lindsay, for putting on the Al Gray Lighted Parade in Fortuna on December 8th. There were 32 entries in the parade that caravanned from the Redwood Village Shopping Center and parked Downtown for the award ceremony. The winners of each category were given prizes and trophies and each entry is thanked for bringing joy to our community. We look forward to planning for all the entries in 2023 and continuing a wonderful tradition!

Holiday Kid's Free Movie

There were 800 tickets handed out to 20 Fortuna businesses for kids to receive free admission to the Fortuna Movie Theater to view Minions: The Rise of Gru on December 9, 2022. There were eight volunteers that assisted with the flow of ensuring children received a toy, popcorn and soda and made their way into one of the six screens projecting the film. The Fortuna Chamber of Commerce also made this event possible for our community, as well as theater staff, so thank you!
