Carol Guild: Time to Paint the Town Pink and trick or treat

With a chill in the air and the scent of home-fires burning, autumn has arrived. But the cold doesn’t do much to slow down the people of western Nevada County.

They’re dressing up the main building at the Nevada County Fairgrounds for the 4th annual Paint the Town Pink.

This very special event will be held from 5 to 8:30 p.m. tonight. Benefitting the advancement of breast cancer care in Nevada County, this fabulously fun evening features food, wine, fashion shows, music, silent auctions and more than 40 vendors with women-related products. Proceeds are donated to the Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital Foundation for the local breast cancer care.

Oh, and notice my haircut? I gave my long locks away last year to Locks of Love. You can get your own style for free at the event. Stop by and see the stylists from Blondies for a new “do” while giving to the cause..

Moving to a more intimate venue, The Off Center Stage behind The Center for the Arts in downtown Grass Valley is filled with music during the Sierra Stages production of “A Grand Night for Singing.” Hindi Greenberg gives this show high marks in her review on page 19. For information, visit or call (530) 346-3210.

Another indication of the change of season is the last Nevada County Certified Growers Market of the year this Saturday. Ragged But Right will be performing for this one with its “foot-stompin’ old time music.”

The weekend calendar is also full of great Halloween haunts. From nightlife to family-friendly fun, there’s plenty to do for all you guys and ghouls! Snap some photos for us, won’t you? We would love to see them – and possibly share them with our readers.

Happy Halloween!
