Quincy Chamber hosts annual fair parade this Saturday

The 75th annual Plumas Sierra County Fair parade rolls down Main Street in downtown Quincy at 10 a.m. on Saturday, July 30. 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 “Celebrating Fairs Past.”

The parade Grand Marshall will also make his entrance — none other than “Chipper” the Plumas-Sierra County Fair mascot. And Quincy’s honorary mayor, John Kolb, will also be present.

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 Fire Station 1 on Lawence Street. The menu includes pancakes, sausage, fruit, orange juice, milk and coffee. Adults $10, children 12 and under $8.
