The fees are $18 for individuals and $25 for a family. Children under 13 must be accompanied by an adult. There is a park entrance fee of $6 per vehicle. Dogs will be allowed on leash.

Galerie Blu’u to host liver disease fundraiser
There are many different types of liver disease. But no matter what type a person has, the damage to their liver is likely to progress in a similar way. Whether their liver is infected with a virus, injured by chemicals, or under attack from their own immune system, the basic damage is the same – that their liver will become so damaged it can no longer work to keep them alive.
Galerie Blu’u inside the MontBleu Resort and Spa on Sept. 14 and 15 will host a liver disease awareness fundraiser for longtime community member Stacy Ballard. The event will take place from 6 p.m. Friday to 12:30 a.m. Saturday. A $10 donation will include one free raffle ticket, silent auction, food, and music provided by Kelly’s Lot, The Prophetz, and a surprise guest.
A representative from Golden State Donor Services will speak about the importance of organ donation and a speaker from the California Hepatitis C Task Force will talk about hepatitis C and testing and the importance of hepatitis A and B immunizations.
To make a donation for the raffle or silent auction call the Galerie Blu’u at (775) 588-3400.
