TyAnna Farmer had her outfit ready for the High Sierra Music Festival this year. Sparkles, glitter, glow sticks, and fishnets. “All the festival works,” she said.
Farmer will be a senior next year at Plumas Charter School in Quincy. She looks forward to the High Sierra Music Festival every year.
“High Sierra doesn't even feel like I'm in Quincy, it feels like I'm in a whole other place,” Farmer said.
But High Sierra was one of dozens of summer events cancelled this year, thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. It's kept many mountain towns in Northern California normally bustling with tourists quieter than usual this year, especially over the holiday weekend.
