Friends of the Fairgrounds: Howard and Hugh

Meet Howard and Hugh, who walk the Fairgrounds 2 to 3 times a week (more now that the weather is warmer). These long-time friends have been walking the grounds for about 4 years, and do it for “health reasons and because of all the friendly people they meet on their walks).  Always happy to see you out here, Howard and Hugh!

Friends of the Fairgrounds: Easy Livin’ Kampers

Meet the Santa Rosa Easy Livin’ Kampers (ELKs). They recently spent time with us at the RV Park at the Nevada County Fairgrounds – and what fun they were! Photographer Dick Kuykendall took 250 photos, and said the group had such a good time and they can’t wait to return. Thanks for visiting us, and we can’t wait to welcome you back, ELKs.
