Bridgeport Fall Festival coming up

The South Yuba River Park Association’s Bridgeport Fall Festival is set for Oct. 23. A broad range of hands-on, family-oriented activities will include gold panning, basket weaving and wool spinning. Participants can take part in hay rides in a wagon drawn by a vintage tractor and enjoy an up-close experience with wild birds provided by Wildlife Rehabilitation and Release of Grass Valley. Tours of the 1860s historic barn and 1920s gas station will be available to all. Live music will be provided by the Buffalo Gals, with picnicking spots available under the shade of large oak trees.

Children’s games will be a part of the festivities, along with face painting, pumpkin painting and building bird feeders. This year’s special attraction will be two magic shows performed by Bernard Bradshaw. Admission is free, parking is $5.
