29th Annual Nevada County Toy Run
Every second Saturday in December – rain, snow or shine – hundreds of spectators line the route to watch motorcyclists (a record was set in 2009 with over 1,800!) rumble through the towns of Nevada City and Grass Valley on their way to the Nevada County Fairgrounds. Every family in need receives a turkey or ham and donated foods to take home for the Holidays. Each child receives at least 3 toys and everyone celebrates with food vendors, raffle prizes and maybe a visit with Santa.
