Huck Finn Jubilee

Father's Day Weekend June 18, 19, 20, 2010

 

Huck Finn Jubilee, an annual event in Victorville, California, includes look-alike Huck Finn kids, a fence painting contest, and the largest bluegrass jam in the world. Jumping frogs, hot air balloons and the arrival of a small town circus at the  Annual Huck Finn Jubilee three-day festival is just plain fun and a bit of tomfoolery. Families can whitewash fences, build river rafts and climb a greased pole. Nearly all 1880’s style contests are free to enter.

 

Roll back to Hannibal, Missouri, where Tom & Becky select a boy to be Huck during Saturday’s Huck Finn look-a-like contest. Injun Joe’s Treasure Hunt, Kid Picker’s jam camp in the Mountain Man village, Mark Twain Live on stage spinning tales of Tom and Huck, and over 30 hours of bluegrass and country music with top artists are part of the entertaining fun. 

A Route 66 car show, California State Arm Wrestling Championships, hot air balloons and countless activities and carnival rides that overlook the park’s two man-made lakes and campgrounds make this the place to be each year, normally a weekend in June around Father's Day. Food and crafts villages offer meals and shopping. Hotels located nearby offer overnight lodging. Parking and admission for children younger than 6 years is free.

 

Mojave Narrows Regional Park, 18000 Yates Road, Victorville, CA, is surrounded by woods, meadows and lakes along the Mojave River. It offers camping, horseback riding and fishing for an outing suitable to the likes of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn.

When attending special events such as the Huck Finn Jubilee, there are approx 12 Victorville hotels offering affordable rooms. You'll most likely be able to find something well under $100, in fact. When we looked to book, we found a chain hotel offering a price of around $50 per night. That price will no likely rise in time, but it gives you an idea of the low end of hotel accommodations pricing in this California region.
