Colusa County wins a Silver ribbon at the 2012 California State Fair for their exhibit featuring the Mendocino National Forest. The exhibit depicts camping at Letts Lake with a tent, campfire and a mural of Letts Lake in the background along with 3 very large trees on a mountain.

The exhibit also features an animated dirt bike rider, hiker, Christmas tree cutter, photographer, horseback rider and a cow roaming the mountains. The valley floor features a couple fishing on the Sacramento River and a hunter taking aim at a duck.

All top 10 agricultural crops are also highlighted.

The Counties Exhibit has been a longstanding fan favorite and continues to draw crowds of fairgoers every year who support their favorite county.  

Fairgoers have an opportunity to vote in the People’s Choice Award, which will be announced on closing day, July 29.
