Weekend Express: Fall fun
Oroville's Annual Salmon Festival a Blast
The annual Salmon Dinner was held at the Nature Center near the Old Bath House Friday evening. One couple who attended said they come every year to celebrate their anniversary. They were expecting a large group of friends and family to join them. Another couple was attending for their first time. They recently moved to Oroville and decided it would be a fun event. They were joined by another couple and a friend from out of state.
Saturday was a day full of fun for the entire town. There was food, music, face painting, and just about anything else one could think of.
There was definitely no shortage of food—from barbeque to tamales to tri tip and, of course, Salmon. There was popcorn and kettle corn and pop corn blouses—oh wait a minute. My bad.
Entertainment was everywhere as well. Bands were on the levee, in the streets, and all around town. Whether it was rock, country, jazz, or other types of music, no one was left disappointed.
Vendors were also involved in the day-long event. There were all kinds of unique items for sale, many made from recycled materials—saving our landfills and beautifying our homes.
The event also included a health fair with tons of information, advice, and flu shots for anyone who desired them.
At the end of the day, no doubt everyone went home exhausted but happy—and anticipating next year’s Salmon Festival.
