65th Annual Tulelake / Butte Valley Fair now underway

Tulelake, Cal. – A 65 year tradition continues in Northern California.

The Tulelake / Butte Valley Fair is a big economic driver for Tulelake…but for Kendra Chadwell of Dorris, it’s also just plain fun.

“I love the booths, and the crafts.”  Says Chadwell.  “And a lot of the rides are really fun, too.”

Paola Chavez of Tulelake adds there’s no shortage of rides in the midway…

“I like the ‘Sizzler’, because it’s really, like fast and fun.”

Sunday’s livestock auction is a red-letter day for many 4-H members.

“My Mom already made me cry about it.”  Notes Adyson Wright of the Winema 4-H.  “She’s like, ‘Your best friend is going to be on your kitchen table sometime.”  –  “Really?”

This is the first year for Nancy Sites as  Fair Manager.

“There’s lot of new entertainment, free stage entertainment, lots of carnival rides.”  Adds Sites.  “New and exciting, and also traditional things to do.”

Saturday’s highlights will include a noon parade down Tulelake’s Main Street, and a ‘Batttle of the Basin’ destruction derby at 7:pm.

The Tulelake / Butte Valley Fair will continue through Sunday.
