Inyo’s Best on Display at the State Fair
Inyo County received a silver award at this year’s California State Fair. The State Fair opened Friday, July 10. The exhibit features popular events that take place throughout the year. New contributors to the exhibit are the Paiute Shoshone Cultural Center, Inyo Council for the Arts, Tri County Fair, and Death Valley 49’ers. Banners often seen at town entrances are hanging on the exhibit walls to encourage fair visitors to visit Inyo County and enjoy its many activities. Events featured also include Mule Days, High School Rodeo Finals, Owens Lake Bird Festival, Manzanar Pilgrimage, Concert in the Rocks, fishing derbies and other community events from Bishop to Shoshone. The exhibit is staffed daily by residents from Furnace Creek, Darwin, Lone Pine, Independence, and Bishop. The Fair runs through Sunday, July 26, 11-10 weekdays, and 10-10 weekends. Rich and Kathy White designed and constructed the exhibit and will have it set up at the Tri County Fair for those who are unable to see it in Sacramento.
