Friday, July 24, 2015 — The 2015 Paul Bunyan Mountain and Blues Festival attracted a crowd Saturday, July 11, due to the multitude of activities it offers, according to Lana Beal, president of Westwood Area Chamber of Commerce. The festival features a logging show, children’s carnival area, blues bands and food and craft vendors.
“The festival was as successful as last year in spite of the fact it was held July 11 instead of July Fourth weekend,” said Beal.
She added the Friday night, July 10 street dance at the Lassen County Visitor Center-Westwood Station also drew a crowd although there was some rain. The Paul Bunyan Mountain and Blues Festival is launched with a free dance under the stars the night before the festivities.
