Why We Love This Place Wednesday: Spring in Lassen County

By Terra Avilla

Ahh, the beautiful sunlight and crisp summer breeze. Spring is officially underway here in beautiful Lassen County. As a part of a tribute to this wonderful season I have decided to showcase the many spectacular things we have going on here in our county.

First things first, our spring sports are thriving. Drive by Pat Murphy Park on a Saturday afternoon and you cannot help but smile. So many little sluggers running around, and games taking place. It really is indicative of spring.

The same goes for Ranch Park and our softball teams. There is just something that is healing about listening to little girls chant “Good eye” from the dugouts.
Speaking of Pat Murphy, you want to know what is literally a hop skip and jump away? The Community Garden!

I took a peek at it this weekend and, oh my gosh, as the garden continues to grow and change, it will remain, in at least a small part, an expression of what’s possible when communities come together to make their landscape – and each other – better.

Next on the list of Spring beauties is a wonderful event for music lovers and supporters, a Bluegrass Festival will be held during the weekends of June 25th to 27th at the Lassen County Fairgrounds.

The enthusiastic event will feature an array of musicians that will create a festive atmosphere with good food and company.

And you can’t talk about the spring without mentioning one of my favorite annual events, Margarita Fest (Yes, it already happening, but boy was it wonderful!)

Our little county also just hosted the Paiute Meadows Trail Run! This event could not have happened on a more beautiful day and allowed participants to experience the area’s best trail system in Susanville Ranch Park with multiple distances, including a 50K, a 30K, a half-marathon, and a 4.5-mile race.

Granted, I didn’t run in it, but boy did it look wonderful!

We also have the wonderful Jr. Fishing Derby coming up. So much to do!

Spring in Lassen County is not just a season, it’s also the celebration our of community. The events between April and June serve to strengthen the bonds of community, making us feel connected and proud of our hometown.

Whether you are a long-time resident of Lassen County or a visitor, Spring in Lassen County has a lot to offer. It’s that promise of great fun, and giving back to the community, that makes this place exactly why I love it here.
