Parade and pancake breakfast on Saturday part of fair celebration

The 76th annual Plumas Sierra County Fair parade rolls down Main Street in downtown Quincy at 10 a.m. on Saturday, July 29. Sponsored by the Quincy Chamber of Commerce, the event is a highlight of the fair festivities, with crowds gathered the length of Main Street to see the entries.

Floats, trucks, horses, athletes, classic cars, stilt walkers and more entertain the crowds — representing local organizations, businesses and schools. The theme for this year’s parade is “Stars, Stripes and Summer Nights.”

Parade Grand Marshall Chesley Pence will drive down Main Street and Quincy’s honorary mayor, Red Powell, will also be honored.

As part of the fair parade tradition, the Quincy Volunteer Fire Department will once again be offering its popular Pancake Breakfast Saturday morning from 7-10 a.m. at the fire station at 505 Lawence Street. The menu includes pancakes, sausage, fruit, orange juice, milk and coffee. Adults $10, children 12 and under $8.
