Costume parade to highlight Halloween events at Fairgrounds

The Nevada County Fairgrounds Foundation is hosting a costume parade at its Halloween event from 2-5 p.m. this Saturday at the Nevada County Fairgrounds. The costume parade will take place at 3 p.m. at the Main Exhibit Building.

There will also be games and treats for kids, a story book club and even a cupcake walk. Hot dogs and all the fixings will be served by Bill’s Chuckwagon, and Bobby “G” will provide family-friendly music for all to enjoy. The Nevada County Narrow Gauge Model Railroad will be open for tours, and weather permitting, Empire Carriage Company will provide carriage rides around the fairgrounds. Nevada County Story Club will have a booth set up and will be reading Halloween stories to children.

Nevada Union FFA will have farm animals outside of the event for viewing, and it will also host the Pumpkin Chucking event, where the students catapult pumpkins across the fairgrounds grass area.

It’s all happening, rain or shine, Saturday. The cost is only $5 per person and includes food, treats, games and entertainment. Tickets can be purchased on the day of the event at the fairgrounds. Parking is free for this event.

The Halloween Fun at the Fairgrounds event is hosted by the Nevada County Fairgrounds Foundation and sponsored by Cirino’s at Main Street. Visit for information or call 530-273-6217.
