Silver Dollar Fair Launches Memorial Day Weekend

CHICO – Since 9 a.m., Butte County kids have been preparing for their respective auctions at the Livestock Barn at Silver Dollar Fair Grounds. For these students, the auction will be the last part of their months-long operation to raise their animals. Guests were lined up outside until noon, ready for fair entertainment.

Audrey Johnson, a senior at Gridley High School and a member of its national FFA organization, was getting ready to auction off her steer, Buzz. Although Johnson has been raising animals such as sheep, pigs, chickens and turkeys, on Saturday, she said goodbye to the first steer she has ever raised.

“I really liked FFA because it taught me work ethic, how to manage my time and most importantly, my money,” Johnson said. “Learning to budget is especially important when you’re planning for the next year.”

After graduation, Johnson plans to attend Cal Poly San Luis Obispo to study agribusiness.

For Jenny Dew and her son, Gavin Lindke, the 2022 Silver Dollar Fair will return to the fairgrounds for the first time since the 2018 Camp Fire. The last time she came to the fair, her son was not even two years old.

“It was like the inspiration for a trip of the moment,” Dew said. “I was thinking that I don’t want to go and spend the money. I had not planned to come, but then at the last minute I decided to leave. We didn’t tell anyone. We’re just in for a surprise. ,

As her mother watched, Lindke was making a splash in a shallow pool near the entrance to the fairgrounds. In a life-sized plastic ball, Lindke tried repeatedly to balance himself enough so that he could stand.

“Man, I need one of these in my backyard,” Dew said. “No, like really.”

Across the field, Abby Hanford and her friend Briana Cruz were exiting the Ring of Fire. After pre-ordering their full day pass at $35 in advance, they could ride as many as they wanted for the entire day. Only on his second ride of the day, he had the rest of the night to rest.

“I thought my glasses were about to fly off,” Hanford said. “But funny enough, it was actually my mask. I don’t know where he is now.”

Together, Hanford and Cruz have been attending the fair together for years.

“I really like riding Area 51,” Hanford said. “You have to go upside down and do many tricks”

“But my cousin threw it at him,” Cruz said.
