Wildflower Festival returns to Oroville – Chico Enterprise-Record



OROVILLE — Riverbend Park was bustling Saturday as folks came out to enjoy the spring weather at the Feather River Recreation and Park District’s 13th Annual Wildflower and Nature Festival.

“This is an amazing, wonderful community event. After all the catastrophes we’ve been through it’s a great spring kick off. It’s nice to be out with people in the fresh air and sunshine and to support the community’s economy and small businesses,” said Kelly Sinn, of Loma Rica who was attending the event with friends from Sacramento and Blue Canyon.

Friends and families strolled the park, some walking their dogs, while enjoying live music from the Strung Nugget Gang and Feather River Gypsies while enjoying food from one of a half dozen vendors including K&P Kettle Corn and Spun Organic Cotton Candy.

“It just feels good to be outside with people and there’s so much to see here – beautiful jewelry, so many crafts and home cured olives. We’re just really enjoying everything,” said Christine Myers who was enjoying the Saturday outing with her mother Lonnie Steadman.

About 20 local resource groups and service organizations including the Lake Oroville Area Garden Club, Feather River Nature Center, African American Family and Cultural Center, Ampla Health and the Feather River Lapidary Society were busy providing information, educational resource materials and swag to attendees.

“It’s great to be out with people after 2020, to see a community return to a little bit of normalcy. We’re glad to be here providing information and resources to women about free breast and cervical cancer screening and diagnostic services,” said Candy Pahua, community health worker with Every Woman Counts.
