NEWS-LEDGER — JULY 25, 2012 –

From the County of Yolo

   This year, Yolo County took home a silver medal for its California State Fair booth in the counties’ exhibit competition. Yolo’s theme was “Yolo: You Only Live Once.”  there were 29 participating counties.

  Yolo County’s unique exhibit evidently impressed the judges with its “bucket list” of great things to see and do in Yolo County.

  This year’s display was made possible by donations from Cache Creek Casino Resort; Fred C. Heidrick Museum; Clarksburg Wine Company – Old Sugarmill; PreStar, Inc.; Yolo County Supervisor Duane Chamberlain; Yolo County Visitors Bureau; YoloArts; Yolo Solano Cooperative Extension.

  The display offered the following Yolo County highlights:

“Surprisingly diverse and engaging, Yolo County offers its own “bucket list” of great things to see and do.  Savor the flavors of farmers markets, award-winning local wines and crazy-good cuisine from American to Thai.  Thrill to the rush of skydiving or river rafting, pro baseball, festivals, parades and world-class performing arts.  Hike or bike the verdant countryside, explore one-of-a-kind museums, dive in to charming small downtowns, and unwind at a soothing spa.  Whatever the season, you’ll find a reason—so come experience the fullness of life in Yolo County.  After all, you only live once!”
