About the Peddlers Faire

The Peddlers Fair is organized by the Lewiston Sparkies, a nonprofit volunteer organization formed in August 2004 when a local group of residents from the Lewiston Garden Club, the Women of the Moose, The Lewiston Lions and other individuals gathered to discuss a fund-raising group to benefit the all-volunteer Lewiston Fire Department. See: Lewiston Sparkies | Lewiston CA events.

Suggested names for the group included the Lewiston Embers, Lewiston Fire Plugs, Lewiston Spark Plugs, with the members choosing the Lewiston Sparkies with a dalmatian as their logo.

In May of 2005, the Sparkies invested their fundraising dollars with the Humboldt Area Foundation, all earmarked for a new fire station for Lewiston.

They formed a Non-Profit Association under CA code in February 2006. They were granted Non-Profit status by the IRS in June of 2006.

According to their Non-Profit description, the Lewiston Sparkies are organized exclusively for charitable, educational and safety purposes under section 501(c) 3 of the Internal Revenue Code. The primary objective of the Lewiston Sparkies is to raise funds for the benefit of the Lewiston Fire Department (LFD), which is overseen by the Lewiston Community Services District (LCSD). The LCSD is a political subdivision of the state of California and has a limited budget to maintain the fire department, streetlights and parks and recreation. The Lewiston Sparkies wish to assist the LCSD in providing funds specifically for additional equipment and buildings for the LFD thereby lessening the financial burden of local government. The Sparkies will also promote public fire safety for the benefit of the Lewiston residents and the firefighters.

Membership is open to all adults (18 years and older) with an annual dues of $10.00.

In 2021, the Officers are President Patti Ryan, Vice President Annabel Myers, Secretary Shirean Duntsch and Treasurer Katie Quinn.

Flowing out of the Trinity Alps, the crystal clear Trinity River is dam-controlled and has guaranteed flows throughout most of year. There truly is something for just about everyone on the Trinity, including both the Class V Burnt Ranch and several long stretches of Class II. Once you’re there, you won’t want to leave. The Pigeon Point run is very popular and the Lower Section is a good option with younger kids. Both are a short drive from the Park. You can even put in or take out at our beach.

For a good synopsis of kayaking runs & take outs check out this site: Trinity River Whitewater & Scenery ( Some excerpts and maps for excellent kayaking runs near our Park ( are included below:

Pigeon Point – Class II-III

Big, rolling, class II and III rapids are the trademark of the Pigeon Point run, which is perfect for families, first time rafters, or anyone looking for a fun adventure with a low fear factor. Rapids such as Good Morning American, Z-Drop, Hell Hole, and Fishtail will keep the adrenaline flowing and the kids squealing with excitement. This run is great for first-time rafters, inflatable kayakers, and for kayakers ready to make the plunge into Class III rapids.

Although the Pigeon Point run is all roadside along Highway 299, it runs through such a remote part of California that it still feels uncivilized. The hillsides are densely forested with pine, fir, alder, and oak trees, and the wildflowers in the springtime fill the canyon with beautiful colors. The Trinity is also a significant river for Salmon runs, although the Salmon populations have dwindled some in the past decade. Chinook, Coho, and Steelhead can all be found in the Trinity.

Insider Tip: Surf spot at Pigeon Point Campground

There is a nice ledge hole/ surf spot just upstream of Pigeon Point Campground. So if you arrive to camp the night before, head upstream on the trail and get in a little evening surf sesh.

Lower Trinity – Class II

Perfect for younger kids and wildlife lovers, the Lower Trinity is remote and provides a genuine wilderness experience. The rapids are Class II, mellow and splashy, and good for learning how to kayak or getting into an inflatable for the first time. Several tributaries have flowed into the Trinity at this point, so the river is higher volume, but the rapids are still family-friendly. Because of the lush vegetation throughout the canyon, wildlife seems to flourish along the lower Trinity.

The Alliance calls it a "must ride if you are in the area. More segments are still being added to this already insanely fun and long downhill." Check out their website - Trails - Trinity Trail Alliance - and this video of the new trail.
