What's Happening in FEBRUARY 2020

Our old Graham Truck is looking for riders to have fun in the 2020 Whiskey Flat Parade. We need folks to ride in the parade. This is your chance to be in the parade and ride with local celebrities. People love our old Graham truck and you will have a lot of fun. So, dust off your western and gold mining duds and come out and be a part of the 2020 Whiskey Flat Parade. No candy throwing allowed, or shootin’ irons without a visible “approved” ribbon. Call Ron Anderson at 760-379-1123 before Saturday, February 15th, the day of the parade.
