THREE RIVERS, CA – In the spring of 1950, families in the small community of Three Rivers, Calif. got together to talk about the long winter. The men stood around and told tall tales, the women brought their favorite dish and the kids ran wild. Little did these folks know, they started a tradition that would be alive and well 68 years later.
