Due to Drought Conditions, Traditional Gold Rush Days Activities Cancelled for 2014

Due to Drought Conditions, Traditional Gold Rush Days Activities Cancelled for 2014

Due to California’s drought conditions and the enormous amounts of water needed to put on the annual heritage event, the traditional Gold Rush Days activities in Old Sacramento have been cancelled for 2014.  The decision was made by Steve Hammond, President & CEO of the Sacramento Convention & Visitors Bureau, along with the City of Sacramento and other stakeholders of the event.

Each year, nearly 200 tons of dirt (or decomposed granite) is used to help transform Old Sacramento into a scene out of the 1850s.  In addition to the visual transformation, the dirt also allows for a safe foundation for the horses, wagons and for various skits and performances to take place in the streets. However, it takes up to 3,000 gallons of water per day to keep the dirt dampened and dust down during the event – plus up to 100,000 gallons of water to clean up the dirt at the conclusion of the event.

Artwork includes paintings, sculptures, and a collection of original art refrigerator magnets. There's something for every animal lover!

A portion of each art sale will go to assist Front Street Animal Shelter with their mission to provide quality care for more than 11,000 animals that come to the shelter each year.

Yolo County Visitors Bureau Launches “Bak2Sac” Free Train Ride Program

Yolo County Visitors Bureau Launches “Bak2Sac” Free Train Ride Program

The Yolo County Visitors Bureau introduces a new program designed to get bicyclists to ride to Davis, patronize local businesses, and get a free train ticket back to Sacramento on the Capitol Corridor railroad. Called “Bak2Sac,” the program involves several businesses in Davis as co-sponsors who stand to benefit from increased visitation.

“The program is really pretty simple,” says Alan Humason, Executive Director of the YCVB. “Come to Davis on or with your bike, and visit participating businesses to pick up a voucher for a free train ticket back to Sacramento. The voucher is good for any train leaving after 7pm on weekdays and after noon on weekends. Turn in the voucher at the Davis Amtrak station and receive the train ticket, free. Hop on board with your bike and go Bak2Sac!”
