Kids had a wonderful opportunity to pick out a pumpkin at the 5th Annual Fall Festival on Saturday October 13 from noon to 4 p.m. on the grounds of Pit River Casino.
For some of the children it was a relatively easy choice.
For others it was a major decision.
After choosing a pumpkin they could paint it assisted by a volunteer from the Burney High School Leadership Club.
The Leadership Club also assisted other fun activities for kids like balloon pop an ring toss. In addition they made cotton candy and popcorn for the children.
Volunteers Maigan Baykin and Jessica Strobel from Tri Counties Bank hosted a cake walk with lots of baked goodies as prizes.
The festival, cosponsored by Pit River Casino and the Burney Chamber of Commerce, featured food from local restaurants Gepetto’s, Dragon Palace, Anna’s Country Kitchen and River Rock Bar and Grill. Wildcard Brewery in Redding provided beer and the River Rock Bar and Grill provided a variety of white and red wines. Adults who attended could pay $25 to enjoy the food and wine or $15 if they only wanted food. Proceeds from the event went to benefit victims of the Carr fire.
