Treat yourself to a designated driver this Halloween

Treat yourself to a designated driver this Halloween

Halloween is an exciting time, filled with magical princesses, scary ghosts and bewitching goblins. It can also be a very dangerous time when drivers mix holiday fun with alcohol. 

Data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration indicates that Halloween is among one of the most deadly holidays for drunk driving. For the holiday period — from October 30 through 5:59 a.m. on November 1, 2011 — 74 people died nationwide in a crash involving a drunk driver, a 21 percent increase over the average number of drunk driving deaths per day. That is why Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) California is asking everyone to make advance plans to stay safe.

Railroad Museum & Raley’s to Showcase the Deep Roots of Railroads & Agriculture

All aboard from Farm-to-Fork!

Coinciding with the inaugural Farm-to-Fork Capital of America initiative, California State Parks, the California State Railroad Museum Foundation and Raley’s Family of Fine Stores will showcase the important role the region’s railroads have played in supporting agriculture.  On September 28 & 29 -- during the final weekend of regular season excursion train rides on the Sacramento Southern Railroad -- a shipment of locally-grown pears donated by Raley’s Family of Fine Stores will be stacked in crates on the Freight Depot platform in Old Sacramento State Historic Park and offered free to train riders all weekend long (while supplies last).
