Some scenes from the fair

It’s a wrap for the 2022 Plumas-Sierra County Fair after a two-year hiatus. Despite temperatures in the 100s, fairgoers turned out to support the popular local event. Even Fair Manager John Steffanic was surprised at the number of people who turned out despite the heat.

The grandstand entertainment — Jake Jacobson on Saturday night and the car races on Sunday — drew crowds that had missed the live venues. The annual Youth Livestock Auction was also well attended. (A separate story will be shared on the auction and the totals raised for area youth.)
