Greetings from the Pittsburg-Camp County Chamber of Commerce:
Great news! Plans are well underway for Pittsburg’s Countdown to Christmas. This year’s theme – Pittsburg’s Whoville Christmas: The Grinch will NOT ruin Pittsburg’s Christmas. The Chamber has had to make several modifications to ensure everyone’s health and safety, but our community is sure to feel the holiday spirit.
Just a few of the activities we have planned include a reverse Christmas Parade. The floats remain stationary, and the spectators drive through the parade route. Socially distanced photos with Santa, and we’ll always remember this as the year kiddos couldn’t sit on Santa’s lap. There is a merchant Grinch Scavenger Hunt and Wholiday Bingo, an ugly mask contest, Commemorative 2020 Pittsburg Christmas T-shirts, and more.
More details are coming soon, but we are asking for local businesses and individuals to ensure the success of all that we have planned.
“Now you listen to me, young lady! Even if we’re horribly mangled, there’ll be no sad faces on Christmas.” — The Grinch.
The Chamber Window is decorated for Christmas! The Grinch won’t ruin Pittsburg’s Christmas!

Yes, it’s true 2020
But, the Pittsburg-Camp County Chamber of Commerce is committed to providing another memorable Christmas for our community. We can’t ensure a special Christmas without the help of our community. We understand that it has been a challenging year for all of us financially, so we offer very reasonable sponsorship opportunities. Your sponsorship commitment will allow us to bring Whoville to life in Pittsburg this holiday season.
Because of you, we can ensure that the song will be very Merry. Every Who in Pittsburg’s Whoville, tall and small, will be singing with joy without any concerns at all. Thank you in advance for your generous support.
