100-degree weather for Shasta District Fair in Anderson this week

The Shasta District Fair on Wednesday kicked off its annual four days of fun at the fairgrounds in Anderson.

If you go, be ready for triple-digit temperatures during the daytime with clear skies and bright sunshine, according to the National Weather Service.

“It’s going to be toasty,” said Anna Wanless, meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Sacramento.

With the fair running from noon to 9 pm, fair-goers can wait until after sundown to escape the high heat. The weather service says nighttime temperatures this week will range from 70 to 74.

Ty Cooke gives a drink of water to Nut at the Shasta District Fair on Wednesday, June 22, 2022. Nut was raised by Macey Bunn of the Foothill FFA and has been judged as one of the top sheep at this year's fair.

This week, fair activities include live entertainment, carnival rides and games, livestock exhibitions and the Junior Livestock Auction, vendor and food booths, and Saturday night auto racing, according to the Shasta District Fair and Event Center.

Fair guests may want to stagger their outdoor fun with visits to shaded indoor exhibits to get out of the baking sun.

The weather service advises fair-goers to drink water, protect their skin with a hat or sunscreen and limit their outdoor stays.
