San Mateo County Times/John Horgan column, 8/26/14. "Kings Mountain"

6 miles south on Skyline Blvd from Highway 92   
Redwoods, free parking, bring money
"The Kings Mountain Art Fair is the well worth the effort to visit. It's been conducted beneath the redwoods since 1963 off Skyline Boulevard high in the quiet hills of Woodside on the Labor Day weekend. Traffic and parking can be a bit daunting, but the free fair can be a rewarding experience. It's being held this weekend, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (breakfast at 8 a.m.) Saturday through Monday at 13889 Skyline Blvd. (six miles south of the Highway 92 intersection).

Proceeds benefit the Kings Mountain Volunteer Fire Brigade, Kings Mountain Elementary School and other worthy community entities."   Read more. 

Reference Kings Mountain Art Fair/About.  "The Kings Mountain Art Fair is an annual event, held every Labor Day weekend.

Fair admission and parking are free."

The Kings Mountain Area is at a loss for the closure last year of The Bella Vista Restaurant and Lodge. I am full of Woe and Melancholy just thinking about it. Where else could you get breathtaking views and chocolate souffle, baked?
