What to do in Sacramento this Labor Day weekend? Here's a couple of not-to-miss events

Gold Rush Days 2016
Gold Rush Days, 2016
Whatever you plan on doing, it's going to be really, really hot... so don't forget the water, the sunblock, and maybe a portable iceberg or three.

Gold Rush Days are happening in Old Sacramento! If you've never been, it's like a trip back into the wild, wild west, with all the fun and games and drama that go with it: the pony express, the ladies of the night, a gunfight or two... cowboys, gold prospectors, and Sacramento as it was in the days of the Gold Rush. Because it's going to be so hot, get there early: take a tour through Sacramento's original streets--underground... it's going to be a tad cooler down there than above ground! Check the schedule to be sure of finding a tour.

A little further into Sacramento, the Chalk It Up festival is happening too: at Fremont Park, on 16th and Q streets. Sacramento's annual chalk art extravaganza, plus a lot of music! There's a list of all the performers and times here. You'll see a huge variety of creative, beautiful, quirky--and temporary--art at Chalk It Up--always a fun event!
