There will be a community barbecue put on by the 4H and FFA for $10 and a 50/50 raffle. Mosquito Serenade will feature the Christian band “WeR1” (usually Mosquito Serenade is on Wednesdays and at the Anderson River Park). The fireworks are free to attend and will begin at approximately 10 pm right after the auto races. The fireworks music will be simulcast on Q97. (530) 365-8095

Run Spot Run

It’s great exercise for both of you, in one of the North State’s most picturesque surroundings. What’s not to love? Be sure to bring bags to clean up after your pet - and he must stay on his leash.

Crusin'

1. Mt. Lassen: Try the 35-mile drive through the main park around sunset, when it’s less crowded - the silence is divine. 2. Whiskeytown Lake is beautiful any time of year: If you live near Redding and don’t have a lot of time, this is a nice, shorat drive, especially if you have small children who constantly ask, “Are we there yet?” Highway 299 West will get you there. Visit Brandy Creek or Oak Bottom if you enjoy relaxing on the beach, or get out and take a little hike to the recently discovered Whiskeytown Falls. You won’t be disappointed!
