Willow Creek Farm did such a nice job displaying their vegetables and fruits that I asked to take a photograph.  The chalkboards were a nice touch to their display.

The Joss house has a lion dance where people dress up in elaborate lion dragon costumes, and dance.

Harvest Festival, Weaverville, California

Saturday there was the Lion Dance at the Joss House in Weaverville. It is to celebrate the arrival of the Chinese New Year. This is about the third time I have been to the Joss House in my life. I do not think many people that live around Weaverville visit it often.

Beautiful colorful costumes for the Joss House celebration.

This is definitely something you want to see if you are visiting Weavervile, California.

The dance was interesting and kids were performing, they were great. It looks like hard work.

 

 

 

 

 

The Temple of the Forest Beneath the Clouds

The temple is the oldest continuously used Chinese temple in California. On display are art objects, pictures, mining tools, and weapons used in the 1854 Tong War. This Taoist temple is still a place of worship and a fascinating look into the role played by Chinese immigrants in early California history. The temple was built in 1874 as a replacement for another that had burned.
