One of My Favorite Times of The Year!

I love the Nevada County Fair… I mean I really love it.  I could go everyday and spend time… and this year I get to do it as part of my job. I will be out there everyday…sometimes working the KNCO Pavilion, but often times cruising the different venues just for my own interest (and of course gathering news stories too).

I love everything on Treat Street… I am fascinated by the exhibits. I enjoy the variety of entertainment and of course my favorite thing is the people. I can people-watch anywhere…but people watching at the Nevada County Fair is exceptional.

If you happen to see me wandering the fairgrounds or working the KNCO Pavilion be sure to say hello. Who knows…maybe you will be part of the news that day.

Happy Fair, Everyone!
