Group events enjoy many of the organized activities such as the WV Gambling Hall (with Wonder Valley funny-money), theme nights such as Murder Mystery or Western BBQ Jamborees, horse drawn hayrides, magic shows, good time piano sing- alongs, and even bus trips up to the Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks.
Individuals who are visiting this beautiful area may also want to take the short drive up the mountain to see the Nation's Christmas Tree (General Grant) and the magnificent General Sherman. The giant sequoias are the oldest living things in the world. Visitors may also want to drive to the nearby town of Reedley and visit the Mennonite Quilting Center for a fascinating look at the art of quilting or stop in at the restored 1903 Reedley Opera House. A stroll through downtown Reedley is like stepping back in time to simpler days when Main Street was the place to be and event strangers greet you like old friends.
A great time to visit Wonder Valley and the beautiful San Joaquin Valley is in February and March and see the famous Blossom Trail. Acres and acres of fruit and nut trees burst out with colorful blossoms of pink, white, maroon in all shades.
