A local tradition that now spans generations, the Lassen County Office of Education’s annual Children’s Fair has been presenting the children of Lassen County with a special day all their own each May for nearly four decades. This year the date of the event has lent itself to a space theme, “May the Fourth be With You,” playing on the iconic Star Wars saying May the Force be With You. The low-cost event, held at the Lassen County Fairgrounds, is a favorite among local families, with a host of groups and organizations participating to make the fun-filled day a success. Many parents who visited the fair as children return to treat their own children to the experience. This year the fair will be featuring a Lip Sync Battle for kids aged 6 to 19 years old, with local talent taking the stage to pantomime to cool music. You don’t really have to sing or dance, and no special talent is required, just your energy, enthusiasm, and the desire to have fun! If you want to be a part of the Lip Sync Battle click here LASSEN COUNTY CHILDREN’S FAIR LIP SYNC BATTLE REGISTRATION ( and follow the link to the sign-up form. The lip sync competition is brought to you by the Tobacco-Use Prevention Education program. Children’s Fair Coordinator James Hall explains that the purpose of the fair is, “to provide an opportunity for families to spend a pleasant day together that will hopefully reduce tobacco, substance, and child abuse within Lassen County.” This year the fair will feature a big selection of community organization booths providing resource information and activities for students along with a vehicle display and face painting. Would your group or organization like to have a booth at the fair? The last day to register is April 24th and you can click here LASSEN COUNTY CHILDREN’S FAIR BOOTH REGISTRATION ( to fill out a booth application form. There will be live entertainment throughout the day, including dancers from local dance studios and costumed characters roaming about the grounds. Static displays of emergency vehicles and other fun things for kids to see will be around each corner at the fairgrounds. Dandy the Smokeless Dragon will be there, and Lassen Youth Football and Star Elite Cheer, Lassen Youth Soccer and the Lassen Aquatics will also be participating in the event. “The Children’s Fair is intended to be a benefit to the community and not a profit-making opportunity,” explains Hall. “Be sure to come and join in the fun.” Admission is free and the Children’s Fair will be held on Saturday, May 4th, from 10:00a.m. until 3:00p.m., rain or shine, at the Lassen County Fairgrounds. For more information you can call the Lassen County Office of Education at 1.530.251.8711.

This installation of the Lassen Jr. Fishing Derby, hosted by the Lassen Sportsman Club, will be in its 35th running year. Coveted prizes donated by community businesses and locals are handed out to the biggest catch of the day in each age group, along with sportsmanship awards.
