This weekend the Old Time Fiddlers Association of California is holding their annual Oroville event. Ages 4 to 90 are competing. Lots of good food and even though it's supposed to rain it should be a great event, all inside at the municipal auditorium, right downtown.

Here's a link to the associate website with their upcoming yearly schedule and information.
