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.

Cool today with clouds clearing out. This weekend will be sunny with some record breaking heat in the North Valley. High in the mid-60s next week with high fire danger.
