OROVILLE, Calif. - It was that time of the year Saturday when Oroville celebrates this unique resource that the North State is lucky to have.


Thousands filled downtown and the Oroville Fish Hatchery for the 24th annual Salmon Festival.


Lots of spectators enjoyed free parking and admission to try smoked salmon, enjoy live music and sip on some delicious local beer.


The event also offered free admission to the hatchery, where tours were offered.


Action News Now spoke to a seller from St. Thomas Catholic School, who says she loves coming out every year to this special event.


“The atmosphere and the people, the comradery when the community comes together is huge everybody is friendly and it’s good to see new faces and meet new people,” said Ronnie Irvin, a member of St. Thomas Catholic School.


The event wrapped up at 4 p.m. Saturday, but the festival is held every year on the fourth Saturday of September.
