Snow Ball waltzes in Camino

Staff Report

The Highway 50 Association will hot its annual Snow Ball at High Hill Ranch in Camino, Calif. on Feb. 17. This annual event to benefit Wagon Train is a fun filled opportunity to dress in period attire of the 1800s and enjoy a delightful evening of fine dining, dancing, gaming, and entertainment.

The Round Mountain Minstrels of Grass Valley will provide “music from the mining camps,” Stephen Foster tunes, and a sprinkling of facts and stories of the era.

The evening commences at 6 p.m. with cocktails at High Hill Ranch on Carson Road in Camino. Dinner will be served at 7 p.m., followed by a rollicking evening of entertainment. There will be several raffle and door prize drawings. If dancing does not suit you, then sit down at a poker table, try your hand at faro, or even roulette, or, just relax and enjoy the wonderful music and stories put forth by Rick Toles and his troupe. From hammered dulcimers to banjos, fiddles and Jews harps, from frisky to sentimental, the tunes will carry you back to the time of excitement when this territory was giving birth to the Great State of California.

Reservations will be accepted through noon on Feb. 16, at $35 per person. Call (530) 644-3761. Overnight accommodations are available a few short miles away in Pollock Pines at the Westhaven Lodge, where a block of rooms have been set aside especially for this event. Call (530) 644-7800.
