All this, plus beautiful views and comfortable benches, chairs, and tables to sit, relax, and enjoy it all.
Local Humboldt vendors are offering tasty plates and tidbits, including BBQ tri-tip by auctioneer Rex Bohn, he is doing both the tri-tip and the live auction. The tidbits from Wild Oaks BBQ, pizza from Marcelli’s, specialties from Angelo’s Pizza, pasta from Bella Italia Restaurant, savories from Avalon Parties and Bear River Casino, plus Mexican delights from Chapala. Stop by the Fun Food Tent for corn on the cob and side condiments, and a cupcake station. Lost Coast Brewery will once again provide award-winning beers and delicious root beer floats.
