LAKE COUNTY – Lake County is the recipient of a Silver Award at the California State Fair again this year.


Through the efforts the Lake County Chamber of Commerce, the exhibit was designed, constructed and staffing arranged for the fair's 19-day run.


Opening on July 14, the fair closes at 10 p.m. Aug. 1.


The 2010 theme for the State Fair is “Passport to Adventure.”


The exhibit for Lake County provides insights into the various adventures which may be experienced upon visiting wine tasting, farm trails, kayaking/canoing with the new water trails brochures, fishing, water recreation galore, camping, community festivals, unique lodging experiences, adventures in historical research and just plain relaxing in the county's clear, clean air.


The title banners at the top of the exhibit replicate passport stamps which list all the communities in the county. Suspended above the exhibit are a mini-motorcycle, a bicycle and a very large kayak. The brand new kayak was donated to raffle during the fair by Holly and Chuck, so a very lucky fair visitor will receive a call in the beginning of August when their name is drawn.


Lake County residents are encouraged to make the trip to Sacramento and visit the exhibit, along with 29 other counties who have displays.
