The last chance to view “Chipper’s Christmas Wonderland” at the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds in Quincy is tonight, Dec. 16. from 5 to 7 p.m. Fair manager John Steffanic said that the drive-thru, no-charge event is a fun activity for the family.
Cars will drive down Fairground Road and look for signs that put them in the correct lane to enter the attraction through the gate to the right of the administration building. The path winds along through the livestock barns and the promenades, past brightly lit buildings, around the family gardens and finally by Santa’s Cabin. Santa will be there on his front porch, waving and talking to families as they stay in their car. A helpful elf will be there with a basket to give out wrapped candy canes from Santa to the kids, and even receive letters to Santa in return. All that is asked is that visitors remain in their cars the entire time. There will be no bathrooms available and no other services that would require leaving the vehicle.
The PSCF Foundation is dedicated to anything that promotes the Plumas Sierra County Fairgrounds and makes it thrive. A major portion of that mission comes from fostering the communities of Plumas and Sierra Counties, and the Foundation has invested almost $20,000 in this event over the past three years. This is a free event. There will be a donation barrel available as visitors leave and contributions will be used to make next year even bigger and better!
