The late Huell Howser visited the Nevada County Fair and Treat Street several years ago. If you missed the episode, KVIE Public Television is running the Nevada County Fair segment of his California’s Golden Fairs series tomorrow (Thursday, July 13) evening at 8 pm.
Here’s the episode, in case you can’t catch it tomorrow night. Enjoy!
Treat Street fun facts! Thanks to volunteers from Calvary Bible Church, the Fair chapel serves delicious coffee drinks and pastries during the Fair. The iced mochas are a particular hit during the Fair. Did you know that proceeds from their Fair sales support several local ministries – Interfaith Food (feeding hungry families in Nevada County), Christian Encounter (residential care and school for young people aged 16-25), and Booth Family Center (housing for families getting back on their feet). Thank you, Calvary Bible Church, for all your hard work on Treat Street! Photo by Kyle Shisler.
