Loyalton Firemen’s Street Festival ~ 25 August 2012

On the way home from Portola’s Train Days last weekend, I saw a sign that Loyalton was going to have a Street Festival with a Show & Shine the following weekend. :) I Love Sierra Valley and you have to like a festival that raises money for the Volunteer Fire Department. My husband was excited that they were having a horseshoe tourney and luck would have it another guy needed a partner, so he got to play. It was a fun day full of old cars, arts and crafts, music, monster truck rides, horseshoes, and good food.

Have lots of pictures from the day ~

Shelby Cobra Mustang

Care Flight made a grand dust storm entrance!

Plumas-Sierra Cattlewomen Quilt ~ Love it!!!

John…we were under the Horseshoe Tourney tent.

The band…before a wind gust took the canopy…and the band played on. :)

Is this not a cool horseshoe pit or what?!

First and Second place teams.

Monster Truck rides…ok, that was one fun ride for $5.

Kid in middle doesn’t agree with me…but his grampa had a blast.

    Great pictures! Looks like you had a blast!

  2. Looks like a great time! LOVE the shot of the Cobra!

  3. I had a train-ride weekend too and bought a raffle ticket in a country town to support the local Country Fire Authority (volunteer fire fighters). Hoping I’ll be a winner and win 1st prize, which is a trailer. I saw a mob of kangaroos while we were out and about. Guessing that might be the point of difference between our weekends.
