In 2015, Burney celebrates it’s 60th Burney Basin Days. The Chamber of Commerce, local service organizations, and volunteers pool their resources and efforts to put on a three day extravaganza of events. There’s a parade, fireworks, barbecues, live music, events at the Pit River Casino, an art show, a Burney Basin Days Queen contest, and many other activities. Each year, as part of the festivities, a select number of local residents raise money for local charities by campaigning to become Honorary Mayor of Burney. They compete by raising money for their chosen charity. Each dollar counts as a vote. As you will see in this video, the Honorary Mayor’s Debate is a lot of fun.
