Contingent on an evacuation plan, potable water and adequate sanitation, the Plumas Board of Supervisors gave its blessing to the Bounce Festival, to be held in Twain from June 20 to 24.
Festival representative Steve Emmerich told the supervisors during their May 14 meeting that he expects 2,000 to 3,000 attendees, but would be prepared for more. Ticket sales are capped at 4,000. The area must also accommodate staff, including security and medical personnel.
Environmental Health Director Jerry Sipe said that he had been working with the festival organizers to ensure that there would be adequate potable water and sanitation, and that each temporary food vendor would be permitted through his department.
Sipe said that some of the details still need to be confirmed, but he was “confident that it can all happen.”
Supervisor Kevin Goss asked about an evacuation plan and Emmerich said that he was working with the Forest Service and the property owners to finalize it.
In response to Supervisor Lori Simpson’s question about keeping concert-goers away from the old mill site, Emmerich said that the area would be fenced off.
The festival organizers have also worked on 24-hour security, fire protection, medical facilities, parking, access, special event signs, lighting and other services and supplies.
