Grass Valley’s Cornish history celebrated with St. Piran’s Day

St. Piran’s Day, Grass Valley’s annual celebration of its Cornish heritage, returns Saturday. The fun starts at 9:30 a.m. at City Hall, featuring a town crier, the raising of the Cornish flag, the Grass Valley Cornish Choir and a pasty toss competition between the mayors of Grass Valley and Nevada City, among others. Visit www.downtowngrassvalley.com for more information. In 2016, Nevada City Police Chief, Tim Foley, competed in the pasty toss against Grass Valley, Police Lt. Alex Gammelgard (who was set to become police chief at the time), during the St. Piran's Day celebration in downtown Grass Valley.
