Saturday July 4th, 2015
Certain places and special stuff happen only in Humboldt: Fern Canyon, Crabs at the yard or on dock C, DellArte, Jazz by the Bay, Humboldt Roller Derby, Arcata’s Oyster Festival and Richard's annual Party at Pamplin Grove.
Most of these treasures you have to be told of or in the know, ...anyone can catch fireworks on the 4th of July!
Well you're in luck! Richard Salzman hereby DOES invite you to his annual gathering at Pamplin Grove ON THE 4TH!
The 12th Annual Community Cookout at Pamplin Grove - in Humboldt County, California USA on the weekend of July 4th, 2015.
Ask anyone who's been! It is a fabulous place to stay the weekend, or just cruise in for dinner on Saturday in this majestic cathedral of old growth redwoods on the banks of the Van Duzen River. Now that you've enjoyed this lovely restoring freezing rain. Warm your heart with thoughts of skinny dipping the Van Duzen in the hot August sun, ...think of the heat.
Friends, family and well behaved dogs are all welcome. Individual campsites sleeps from 1 to 15 people. You can pretty much get all you want to eat up at the cookhouse, so if you are camping, you don't need much more then a tent, a sleeping bag and pad to be comfortable. Interesting people in abundance. Music, sunshine, volleyball, horseshoes, swimming holes and a bonfire are included.
Gates open at noon on Friday July 3rd and the big potluck dinner is on Saturday afternoon the 4th. A breakfast will be served at the cookhouse on Sunday morning the 5th and a supper late in the day Sunday for those wishing to stay another night.
Car pools from the airport and loaner camping gear can be arranged for out of town guests, and if you don't want to camp, there are motels in nearby Fortuna. You are also welcome to just come out for the day and enjoy the big potluck on Saturday!
More details will follow this summer, but mark your calendar now and plan to be in Humboldt County on July 4th 2015.
