OROVILLE, Calif.- Thousands came out to celebrate 25th annual Salmon Festival this weekend in Oroville. 

The event is a huge boost to the local fish hatchery and surrounding economy and is a favorite among families in the area.

Anna Kastener, the Oroville Fish Hatchery Manager, says they host the event once a year on the fourth Saturday of September to celebrate the salmon coming back to the Feather River. 

Kastener says, "We have a river coming through our town and the fish come through it and there's not that many towns that have this and the fish are 20-25 pounds and they come back every year and they are very important to the economy and natural resources and it's a great opportunity to celebrate having them back."

The event also featured food, music and Fish Hatchery Tours.
