Vol. 2 • No. 12 • FAIR EDITION The Calaveras County Fair & Jumping Frog Jubilee is one of the longest running events in the State of California. It earliest roots date back to 1893, held that year in Copperopolis, the fair eventually found a permanent home outside of Angels Camp. In the spirit of the old movie classic “State Fair,” the Calaveras County Fair is a blend of entertainment, exhibits, livestock, arena events, great food and our signature event, the Frog Jump. This piece of Americana will have you Leaping to return year after year. The Calaveras County Fair and Jumping Frog Jubilee has grown to an event with more than 35,000 attendees. It is estimated that the Calaveras County Fair generates approximately 25.5 million dollars in revenues through hotels, restaurants, retail, payroll and other related revenues. The top 50 frogs qualify for the International Frog Jump Grand Finals, which are held on Sunday afternoon of the Jubilee. The current worlds record was set in 1986 by Rosie the Ribeter. Rosie jumped 21 53/4. The cash prize for breaking the world record is $5000. a decades looK BacK aT soMe oF our chaMPions 2011- Kevin daly, Bozos Frog Team, sacrament jumping “it’s cheaper to leap her” 20’” 2001 - Lee Giudici of Santa Clara jumping “Greenbay Packers” 19’9” 1991 - Denny Matasci of Santa Clara jumping “Fun & Froglic” 18’9.5”

You get to name your frog and attempt to crown him/her the new champion! The frogs jumped at the Jubilee live in our “Frog Spa” during the four days of Fair. The Frog Spa is open for tours daily. They are treated with the upmost care and respect. In 1933 the California Fish and Game Commission became involved in order to regulate and protect the welfare of the Califor-

nia bullfrog. In 1995 the Board of Directors of the 39th District Agricultural Association adopted the Frog Welfare Policy. Underscoring the Fairs commitment to treat the frogs in a humane manner. Professional Frog Teams travel from all over the state to compete. Past champions get to camp at our beautiful Frog Pond. If you are looking for some tips on how to jump, find one of our Frog Teams. They are true professionals! The Jumping Frog Jubilee is held the 3rd weekend of every May. The Jubilee starts with a childrens parade in downtown Angels Camp and ends with a Destruction Derby on Sunday evening. The Calaveras County Fair has a unique history and a bright future.

Canaan Smith to headline at the Calaveras County Fair Canaan Smith will be the headlining act on May 19 at the Calaveras County Fair & Jumping Frog Jubilee. Possessing a distinctive voice that combines a breezy cool vibe with heart-on-his-sleeve emotional honesty, Canaan Smith has emerged as one of country music’s most compelling new artists. Behind his easy-going boy next door charm lies an accomplished storyteller equally gifted at romantic ballads, up tempo anthems and poignant slice of life songs that convey universal truths. The young artist’s ability to draw from such a vivid emotional canvas comes from a life well lived. Equal parts sensitive songwriter and fearless adventurer, Canaan was writing and performing around Music City when he was recruited to compete on the hit television reality show “The Amazing Race,” traveling to such locales as Dubai, Japan, Vietnam and Cambodia. However to him the most exciting adventure was seeing his reputation as a songwriter grow as he scored cuts by Jason Aldean, Billy Ray and Cyrus/Amy Grant and other acts and scored his first top ten hit as a songwriter. “It’s all about the stories,” Canaan says when asked about his love of country music. “You can listen to a country song and it will raise the hair on your arms. I’m a people person and I love being able to connect with people. I’ve always admired the way my heroes made real connections with country fans; I want to follow in their footsteps.” Canaan has crafted a memorable debut album that showcases his strong, supple vocals and his insightful, evocative songwriting.

history of the celebrated Jumping Frog In 1865, Samuel l. Clemens (Mark Twain) penned The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County, a tall tale of the life and happenings of the gold rush town, Angels Camp. The narrator details a story he heard in a tavern. It is about a frog, Danl Webster, who could out jump any other frog, and a man, Jim Smiley, who was the curiousest man about always betting on anything that turned up you ever see. The story was published and delighted audiences worldwide but didn’t appear to have much impact on Calaveras County until much later. The mining town of Angels Camp became incorporated as the City of Angels in 1902. Tents would line narrow, unpaved lanes which were rutted and in rough condition from years of wagon and stage coach use. As the town built up around them, the streets remained in their old state. By 1927, the residents were ready to remedy the deplorable condition of main street by passing a bond measure to finance a paved main street. The Angels Camp Boosters, a community service organization, which began in 1925 and still exists today, decided that a celebration was in order. Their original idea was to hold the Days of 49, but a visiting minister, the Reverend Brown, suggested they use the famous Mark Twain story theme. Therefore on May 19 and 20, 1928, the first Jumping Frog Jubilee was held on main street, down town Angels Camp. Due to the formidable efforts of this group of dedicated pro-

moters, including the future Senator, Jesse M. Mayo, the attendance at the first Jumping Frog Jubilee was estimated to be 15,000. The festivities included a large parade featuring bands, wagons, floats and of course the Jumping Frog Contest. The winner was named Pride of San Joaquin, jockeyed by Louis Fisher of Stockton. In the 1920s and early 1930s the crowds at the Annual Jumping

Frog Jubilee grew to 25,000 spectators. The jubilee was suspended in 1933 because of the depression. In 1938 the two events, the County Fair and the Jumping Frog Jubilee were combined. Now over 50,000 people attend the four day event, and thousands of frogs are jumped. For the 2012 Fair, we expect to have close to 10,000 frog jump entries as the tradition and excitement grow.

Miss calaveras Pageant

single, “We Got Us,” is a tender romantic ballad that anyone who has ever been in love and struggling against all odds will relate to instantly. “I Like It That Way” is an appealing up tempo come on. “All in My Head” is a vibrant track that oozes with personality while “Prettiest Girl in Town” demonstrates Canaan’s depth as a songwriter as he entertains the listener with a breezy tune about a pretty girl then lands an emotional punch as you realize that pretty girl is a youngster battling cancer. The price of the concert is included with admission. The Show will be at 8:00 p.m. on the main stage following the Friends of the Fair $1,000 drawing.

Metal & More Inc.

By Amanda Chaddock Staff Writer At this year’s Calaveras County Fair and Jumping Frog Jubilee, the Miss Calaveras hopeful that takes home the crown will also take home the title of the 75th Calaveras Queen. The Miss Calaveras pageant, which was once called the Belle of the Camp, continues to be a treasured part of the fair as it reaches this anniversary. The contest will take place on Thursday evening, May 17 at 8:00pm. “This community is small, but strong. I firmly believe that the whole community supports all of the children that are raised here, and the pageant is one of the ways that the community shows their support and gives their young women a platform to grown in confidence, talent and courage,” comments Pageant Coordinator Lacy Neufeld.

The contest consists of the following categories: the interview, health and fitness, talent, and evening gown. The candidates begin preparing about two months prior to the competition, with rehearsals taking place one to two times a week. Once a winner is crowned, they will then attend community events including the Pow Wow in Valley Springs, the PAWS Elephant Grape Stomp, the 4th of July Parade in Arnold, and the Grape Stomp in Murphys. “Their main duty is to give back to the county which has given them the honor of representing them, through volunteerism and poise,” says Neufeld. Ultimately, the Miss Calaveras pageant is a staple at the fair that plays a part in the community throughout the year. See PAgEAnT on Page 2
