The magic is set to begin next week Laura Beaton Staff Writer "The Magic of Court,trY Living" is this year's fair theme, and Fair Manager John Steffanic was excited to show off the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds to seven board members and county supervisors Jon Kennedy and Lori Simpson July 25. The Fair runs Aug. 8 - 12. Steffanic directed a tour of the grounds from the "train," driven by longtime employee Oran Morrison, that took rid- ers to view some of the many special fair features strategi- cally placed over nearly the entire fairgrounds. The Fair Parade begins at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 11, at the corner of Main Street and Lindan in downtown Quincy. Events include a free Fri- day concert by Ryan Steven- son, Bull Ride Smackdown, the carnival, Enduro, Red- neck Water Park, Kidland!, Swan Brothers Circus, teen dance, Cow Plop Drop, Bub- ble Fun and lots of food ven- dors. Contests such as Oreo stacking, donut eating and apple peeling will take place. 4-H exhibits, including the Salsa Shack, a demon- stration garden and kitchen, will entice fairgoers to learn and enjoy. Steffanic praised Mimi Hall and the Health Depart- ment as a model of govern- ment cooperation for using thousands of dollars ob- tained from grants to collab- orate with the fair in educat- ing the public about healthy living and the perils of smok- ing and drinking. Exhibits at the Art Barn are being orchestrated by Portola and Quincy high school art teacher Danielle DeBoever, and dedicated in memory of Howard Heyden, a tireless volunteer who passed away last October. Stet'fanic also reported on the High Sierra Music Festi- val. Peak attendance was es- timated at 12,000 people. There was no major damage done and the festival was deemed low-impact. Board director Barbara Butterfield, finance commit- tee chairwoman, gave the fi- nancial report. There were no surprises amidst these current times of economic struggle. Everyone is work- ing hard to make ends meet and doing a good job of it. Fair vendor slots are near- ly sold out, and community businesses and residents have donated generously to support the long-standing tradition of county fairs. Come on down and check it out!
