Visit is part of Howser’s PBS series on “California’s Golden Fairs”
Huell Howser, noted television personality and founder of the PBS program: California’s Gold, spent the day at the Nevada County Fair on Thursday. During his visit, Howser spent time on the Fair’s Treat Street, sampling the various foods and interviewing individuals from the various non-profit organizations represented on Treat Street. In addition to his visit to Treat Street, Howser spent time filming the Fair’s Gold Path, the tall Pine trees, and the Draft Horse monument at the front of the Fairgrounds.
Howser’s visit to the Nevada County Fairgrounds is for his developing PBS series entitled “California’s Golden Fairs,” which will consist of 12 episodes. The “California’s Golden Fairs” series will consist of 12 episodes expected to air in the Spring of 2011. Eleven of the episodes will be a half hour long and will feature a different Fair – with one of the 11 episodes focusing solely on the Nevada County Fair. The 12th episode will be dedicated to all of California’s Golden Fairs and will feature Howser as a host.
Part of the Nevada County Fair episode will be featured in November on KVIE, and, then again, in the Spring 2011, when the entire series begins airing at a rate of one per week for 12 weeks.
There are 78 Fairs in California. Howser chose to feature the Nevada County Fair because of its strong community roots, its natural beauty, and its unique Treat Street.
The 2010 Nevada County Fair is happening now through Sunday, August 15. The 2011 Nevada County Fair is August 10 – 14. Visit www.NevadaCountyFair.com for information.
