Annual Children’s Fair draws kids with a variety of activities

The climbing wall, bounce house and petting zoo were all popular attractions during the annual Children’s Fair held May 13 at the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds. The event is sponsored by the Plumas County Child Abuse Prevention Council.

Other popular booths included those offered by the CHP, Sheriff’s Office, Quincy Fire and Quintopia. Free hotdogs, carnival food and cold drinks were consumed in the shade as the day grew warmer.

There were many booths dedicated to providing resources and information materials on protecting communities from wildfire, including Firewise, Plumas National Forest, Fire Safe Council, Sierra Institute and more.
