Annual Christmas Tree Lighting

The City of Fallon Mayor Ken Tedford warmly invites guests inside City Hall, across the street from The Douglass, to meet the department heads and elected officials who serve the community.

New Years Eve Fireworks and Bonfire

Ring in the new year with an impressive display of fireworks inside the Churchill County Fairgrounds and feel every launch and explosion from the grandstands. Follow the show with a bonfire large enough for the whole community to gather around and celebrate.
