Celebrating the "Pear"
I started collecting Pears about 24 years ago...we live right smack in the middle of pear orchards. We are not pear farmers, however most of our friends are. At first, mom poo-poo'd the whole collection saying, "you'll never find anything all year long with pears on it". BIG FAT HA HA! I now have over 517 pear objects ranging from earrings to wall hangings, carpets, and yes stamps! I even have a pear collection scrapbook layout of course!
I celebrate the PEAR all year long....read below how others celebrate once a year!
Haley is now 20 and she's only missed 2...once when she was really small and sick, and the day she left for Sweden for a year.

9:00 am to 6:00 pm
"Always the last Sunday in July"
The Pear Fair is held in the River Delta town of Courtland which is located 20 miles south of Sacramento on scenic Highway 160. Beat the city heat and come enjoy the glorious 'Delta Breezes' as you celebrate with us!!
The fair offers a wide range of entertainment for everyone and a scrumptious food court with many foods to choose from! Be sure to get your slice of pear pie and pear fritters early before they sell out! To quench your thirst, join us in the Beer and Wine Garden for a cold refreshing Coors or taste some of the local wines of the areas. Don't forget to take home your souvenir wine glass!
Be sure to catch our Parade at 1:00, (haha! for over 30 years, the parade was suppose to start at Noon....never did, so they changed the time!) you will want a good seat for this great tradition! As the day goes on be sure to sit back and enjoy one of the great bands featured at the fair!
Oh and did ya notice...their still GREEN!
Post Pear Fair!
