In 1957, the Kernville Business Association (precursor to the Kernville Chamber of Commerce) started Whiskey Flat Days. Whiskey Flat Days is always held on Presidents Day Weekend in February. The 56th Annual Whiskey Flat Days will take place February 15-18, 2013 and the theme is “Music on Movie Street.” This winning theme entry was submitted by Lucian Whitman; Jeanette Rogers-Erickson created the theme image.
There is some history that goes along with this theme since there was an actual “Movie Street” in Old Kernville where many old westerns were filmed. Take a step back in time and celebrate life in the 1850′s. This old-fashioned, western style festival includes a parade, gunfighters, carnival, music, vendors, and a Whiskey Flat Encampment. Get a chance to win some great prizes when you enter the Epitaph Contest, Frog Jumpin’ Contest, Whiskerino Contest, and more! Be here to find out who will be our next Honorary Mayor of Whiskey Flat!

Charity: Kern Valley Youth Football & Cheer facebook.com/pages/Kern-Valley-Youth-Football-and-Cheer/
Bio/Statement: My charity, Kern Valley Youth Football & Cheer, is a non-profit organization that is designed for the youth of the Kern River Valley. It allows ages 4-14 learn Team Building and how to get along with others. It allows these children to do something other than sitting in front of the TV. My daughter has been involved with youth Cheer for 8 years now. Next year is her last year as a youth Cheerleader, but not our families last year on involvement. My goal is to help these girls get enough money raised for new uniforms, sponsors for those that can’t afford the cost of the program, ability to pay the fees that the school charges for practices and games, etc. We do fundraising throughout the year, however we haven’t been able to raise enough money to cover the cost of new uniforms or warm ups. Hopefully by doing this we will be able to scratch the surface a little. I appreciate all of your support and help.
