Hat Creek Festival a Country Delight

Hundreds of folks gathered at the 3rd Annual Hat Creek Beer, Food, and Wine Fest to enjoy good food and drink, music, and fun activities. Several people who attended from Redding and other areas said it was nice to get away from the heavy smoke due to wildfires.

The event began at Hereford Ranch RV Park and Campground at noon and lasted into the evening. Fun activities included ranch tours, a children’s AG fun park, face-painting, horseshoes, and corn hole toss. Visitors could fish or swim in the pond as they enjoyed the afternoon. There were also a number of local artisans set up to sell their wares.

Folks gather to enjoy country music performed by Jared Hovis

During the afternoon there was music on the pavilion performed by the Smokin’ Roaches, Alex Colvin, and Jared Hovis. In the evening California Country played on the playground stage, once again featuring Jared Hovis.

Food was provided by Anna’s Country Kitchen, JJ’s and Red Bicycle. Beer vendors included Fall River Brewery, Woody’s, Eel River Blonde, and FW 805. Dakaro, Churn Creek Cellars, Moseley Family Cellars, and Cove Crest provided wine.

Proceeds from ticket sales went to benefit Mayers Memorial Healthcare Foundation. Other charities also participated and raised funds. Hat Creek Volunteer Fire Department served ice cream and root beer floats. Inter-Mountain Heritage Foundation had a beer booth. Mayers Memorial Healthcare Foundation and Haley’s Insurance ran the corn hole, and Friends of the Intermountain Library hosted the horseshoes.

Rick and Karen Alvord win Best of Show at Rex Club Days Mountain Cruisers Car Show

Rick and Karen Alvord from Redding won the trophy for Best of Show at the Mountain Cruisers Car Show at Rex Club Days. Their prize-winning vehicle was a cherry red 1957 Chevy Belair.

Sixty participants from California and Oregon came to enter their classic cars in the show. This is the 26th year that Mountain Cruisers has sponsored the car show for Rex Club Days. Plaques were also awarded for First and Second Place for each class of Stock, Modified, and Open.

Ron Conley, President of Mountain Cruisers said, “Everybody would like to win, but it’s really about connecting with others, sharing  ideas, and having a wonderful time.”

Rick and Karen Alvord receive trophy from Ron Conley

Rick Alvord acquired his winning ’57 Chevy in 1999 and spent 10 years working on it in his garage before it was ready for its first show in 2009. In addition to winning Best of Show, they also won Rex Club Choice.

Mrs. Alvord said, “There were a lot of other cars that were deserving, so we are very honored.”

Proceeds from the car show go to benefit local charities, such as the schools and the library. This year a free night’s swim at the Raymond Berry Community Pool will be one of the projects funded.

In addition to the car show, there was also a fine art and craft fair sponsored by the Rotary Club of Burney-Fall River and organized by Andrew Urlie. Various booths featured items such as hand-made quilts and baby blankets, art photography, jewelry, home-made soaps, great hand-crafted wood items by the McKay brothers, and fine art pottery by Mr. Urlie.
