County picnic, jackpot roping, American Valley Speedway races, roller derby, 4H and FFA, Open Horse Show. Holy cow, we've got lot's planned over the next few weeks. If we could just get the weather to cooperate, we could get some stuff done! On top of all the events, we've got major improvements going on at the Fairgrounds. Whatever event you come to (and we hope it's all of them), you will notice the changes. The best way to support your fairgrounds is to attend any event you can. We appreciate your time and want to give you the best show possible. Don't forget to buy your Trailer Choir tickets, just click on the entertainment tab above. Let's go Summer!!!
If you didn't make it to the Children's Fair this weekend, you really missed out. Everything a kid might find interesting was there. Fire trucks, tow trucks, the Highway Patrol, the Forest Service, even a huge pile of snow. There were pony rides and karate demonstrations, food, music and more. Plumas Children's Council did a bang up job with special kudos to the Chair of the event; Lucia Biunno. She will tell you that she had lots of help, and she did, but for her first time out, we are all very proud of her.
Big doings on June 5 this year. It's the County Picnic, a 23 year tradition. The showcase has always been the Sierra Cascade Streetrodders Show & Shine, and that will continue. American Valley Speedway will have their races that night and Plumas County's own Roller Derby team, the Mudslingers are back for another bout in the afternoon! The County Picnic is also Showmanship and Awareness day for our area 4H clubs, so that's a great activity for the family. Come see what 4H is all about. The Lion's Club will have their delicious breakfast and there will be a variety of food and product vendors to make this a complete day.
