The South Yuba River State Park and California State Parks invite you to the 150th birthday celebration of the Bridgeport covered bridge this Sunday, April 29 from 11:00 AM – 4 PM at the South Yuba River State Park’s Bridgeport Crossing. The Bridgeport bridge is the longest single-span wooden covered bridge in existence. Join SYRCL in celebration of this success and stop by our table with activities for children and information about our latest projects and programs. Because of the community’s diligent and enthusiastic efforts led by SYRCL, this remarkable park is off the closure list allowing access for all to enjoy the wild & scenic South Yuba River, the historic bridge and barn, and restored shell station.
This family-friendly celebration will be the largest part of the annual spring festival with great food, wagon rides, music, pioneer games, barn tours, gold panning and a return of the first owners of the property during a theatrical production by local actors. The park visitor center will be open for browsing. For more information about this FREE sesquicentennial birthday party, please call the Park, (530) 432-2546 or go to www.southyubariverstatepark.org.
