“Lassen Volcanic National Park has waived fees on Saturday, January 19 and Sunday, January 20 to encourage visitors to attend the second annual Lassen Film Festival and discover winter in the park,” said Superintendent Darlene M. Koontz. These free entrance days coincide with the scheduled fee-free day on Monday, January 21 in celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
The Lassen Film Festival celebrates Lassen through outdoor fun and film. This year’s selections include films featuring California State Parks, park wildlife, volcanoes, and space exploration. View the complete festival schedule at www.nps.gov/lavo/planyourvisit/film-festival. This free event begins at 10 a.m. at the Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center. Visitors are encouraged to bring snow clothing and equipment to enjoy snow play before or after the festival or to participate in the Saturday or Sunday 1:30 p.m. ranger-led snowshoe walk.
Visitors traveling to the park should be prepared for winter weather and driving conditions. Carry tire chains in your vehicle from October through May, along with extra food, water, and blankets. For more information, please contact the park at (530) 595-4480, Thursday through Monday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. or visit the park website at www.nps.gov/lavo.
