Pioneer Day in Fall River Mills

The annual Pioneer Day Celebration will be held on June 6, 2009 in Fall River Mills, California. This is always a fun event that celebrates the heritage of the Fall River Valley.

In addition to the Pioneer Museum, there will be a working blacksmith shop, old engine display (working and non working), craft booths, lots of food and additional activities and of course, the Dutch Oven Cook-off which is always a local favorite.

The event will be held at the Fall River Mills Museum grounds right next to State Route 299 on the west end of town.
