Marysville expects 30,000 people to come into town Friday and Saturday for its 15th annual Peach Festival.
The seat of Yuba County once produced half of all canned peaches in the world, and since 1999, has been offering a free, two-day festival celebrating the fruit. Offerings at the fair include peach ice cream, cobblers, pies, shakes – even peach basted barbecue.
The festival runs from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday along downtown Marysville’s D Street, which is a block east of Highway 70 and two blocks south of Highway 99. Marysville is about 35 miles north of Sacramento.
