The Tulelake-Butte Valley Fair is the largest annual event held in the Klamath Basin, designed as a fair where “our friends from over the line in Oregon could meet and visit and compete and enjoy each other.” The week following Labor Day, over 40,000 people of all ages and backgrounds relish in the carnival rides, Kids Barnyard Rodeo, Jr. Livestock Auction, live music, and loads of fair food.

Taking a cue from the leaves in my centerpiece, I use amber and amethyst glassware, which I found at Treasures and Keepers Corner.
