There’s a lot going on the weekend of May 10-11, with events for every interest and taste, all in beautiful Butte County. Here are two of them:
Feather Fiesta Days is the big event in Oroville. The Butte County Historical Society is taking part by hosting Conversations With Local Authors at the Ehmann Home from noon to 3 p.m. Looking for a book on local history and travel? Find it in the gift shop and get it signed by the author, or just enjoy chatting with local researchers about their areas of interest. The books include titles covering several Butte County towns, Oroville Dam, Oroville-Quincy Highway, the poet Pres Longley, John Bidwell, flumes and hiking trails, a logging mill, and other topics of local interest.
I’ll be signing my books on John Bidwell and Pres Longley. I’d love to meet you! Drop in anytime during the open house to chat. Refreshments will be served.
Museums all around Butte County have joined together to host the first ever Chico Area Museum Alliance Museum Hop. Start at the museum of your choice, get a passport, and visit as many as you can on Saturday and Sunday, May 10-11. Your name will be placed in the prize drawing. Participating museums are: Bidwell Mansion State Historic Park, Chico Creek Nature Center, Chico Museum, Colman Museum, Gateway Science Museum, Janet Turner Print Museum, Museum of Northern California Art, Patrick Ranch Museum, Stansbury House, and Valene L. Smith Museum of Anthropology.
