Not only will the 2nd annual Halloween parade take place in Nevada City on Friday October 31st, there will also be live bands playing at the Miner’s Foundry afterwards.
Come join us for some ghoulish fun and catch all the wild and creative costumes.
The parade starts at 5 pm on Broad Street in downtown Nevada City. For more information click here.
After the parade, head over to the Miner’s Foundry where we will dance the night away to Mumbo Gumbo.
Mumbo Gumbo blends many genres from rock to soul, afro-pop to lush balladry, zydeco to country, into a celebratory, danceable noise, creating something less a specific style than a particular feeling: The Sound of Sheer Joy.

See you on the dark side!

If you haven’t eaten at The Fix restaurant in Nevada City, now would be the time.
The Fix is closing soon.
Great tasting healthy food is what The Fix is known for.
Super foods, beautiful ambience, and delicious smoothies are just a few reasons why you should grab a seat at their table before they close their doors.
The 120 ft long suspension bridge is now open. Walking down from the Miner’s Foundry along a winding path, you approach a newly installed bridge suspended over the tranquil waters of the Deer Creek. This is no ordinary bridge. Walking across feels like you are on a trampoline and you are suspended quite high over the river below. The Forest Trails Alliance built this bridge for our community and it is beautiful.
For more information on the trail and how to get there go to:
