California Travel Tips

Weekend in Paradise

Published on: April 22, 2019


Paradise, Calif. — Gold Nugget Days April 26-27, 2019 (no parade this year.) Gold Nugget Days has been an annual festival that began 60 years ago in 1959 to celebrate the discovery of a 54-pound gold nugget in 1859.

The town has faced many situations and risen above them, thanks to strong community bonds and great organizations such as the Paradise Ridge Chamber of Commerce and Gold Nugget Museum.

Nothing could have prepared this “little bit of paradise” for the Camp Fire, the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in California history to date. It began on November 8 and was contained November 25, 2018, killing around 85 people and burning down nearly 19,000 buildings. Its damage is estimated at $16.5 billion, but nothing replaces lives lost.

If you want to find resilience, look to Paradise, where the show goes on with a celebration this weekend!
