The Plumas Sierra County Fair runs through July 31 and no doubt the carnival is among what is most anticipated among kids.
As has been the tradition, discounted presale carnival tickets are available at locations throughout Plumas and Sierra counties; all Plumas Bank Branches, Sierra Valley Home Center, Sierra Valley Feed, Safeway and the Fair Office. There are two kinds of tickets available: the Golden Ticket is $90 and can be exchanged for a wristband that allows unlimited rides every day of the fair. It also comes with a few coupons that can be used for discounts of carnival food and midway games. The other option is the carnival coupon. It is $25 and can be exchanged for an unlimited ride wristband on Thursday or Sunday. It cannot be exchanged for a wristband on Friday or Saturday, but it can be exchanged for $32 worth of ride tickets any day of the fair. That’s a good option for real young kids who might want to enjoy a kiddie ride or two, or maybe a couple that can stomach a couple of rides on the Ferris Wheel!
There are height limitations and those can be found on the home page of the fair: www.plumas-sierracountyfair.net. All the rides listed might not be at the fair, but it will give you an idea of who can ride a particular ride before you get to the fair.
