Lowdown: Chill It Out -- Humboldt's Recovery Sunday

Well, that was fun. 

The most packed of Humboldt weeks winds down Sunday with a few hanger ons. After ten deep fried days the Humboldt County Fair wraps up with a bang today down in Ferndale -- in conjunction with "Hispanic Heritage Day" attendees will get a pro wrestling eyeful courtesy of Lucha Libre Mexicana.

Up in Arcata, the final day of the Creamery Festival features the Big Top Vaudeville Variety Show. The kids will dig that.

And don't you even think about forgetting Furniture Fest, dagnabbit! That and more in Sunday's Lowdown below.
