When relocating to an apartment in the Sacramento
area, renters will find that a number of communities can claim to have the commerce, schools, recreation and excitement that may call them to the town. However, only one California community can claim to be the Bartlett Pear Capital of the World, and that's Courtland. Residents who decide to move into a Courtland apartment will find a whole segment of the community and a lengthy list of events that all center around region's indigenous fruit.
Every year since 1972, those with apartments in Courtland, California, have celebrated the best of what their community has to offer at the Courtland Pear Fair. Favorites of the small-town fair include the famous Delta-region pear pie, the ever-popular pear smoothies and even pear beer, available in the wine garden. There's also the pear cook-off. Past entries have included cheese-filled pears in butter rum sauce, and sour cream pear pie.
Of course, the decades-old festival has more than just a few barrels of pears. Live music, a wide selection of food and wine, a classic car exhibit, rides for children and a parade have also become annual traditions among residents with Courtland apartments. An impressive arrangement of decorative floats flow through the streets, as the gathered crowd awaits the end of the parade, when the Pear Fair Queen is named.
