CARMICHAEL, CA (MPG) - Carmichael recently celebrated the two-year anniversary of an event whose success at first seemed like a long shot. Food Truck Mania has proven to be one of Carmichael Park’s most popular programs.

Held on the first Thursday of each month, the culinary congregation is here to stay. “It’s a big draw for families,” confirms park district supervisor Elizabeth Crisante. “People bring chairs and just camp out for a night of family time and great food.”

The Magical Holiday Tradition Continues in Old Sacramento with 6th Annual Theatre of Lights

Posted: 11/20/2014

SACRAMENTO, CA (MPG) - Known as a magical, electrifying and family-friendly holiday tradition in Old Sacramento, the ever-popular and free Theatre of Lights performances return on Wednesday evening, November 26th, following an official tree-lighting ceremony that begins at 6 p.m. and is open to the public. The 2014 Theatre of Lights is proudly sponsored by Bank of America and presented by the Old Sacramento Business Association (OSBA) in cooperation with Downtown Sacramento Foundation (DSF), the City of Sacramento Department of Convention and Cultural Services, and Old Sacramento merchants and small business owners.

Theatre of Lights artfully mixes the historic charm of Old Sacramento with state-of-the-art sound and lighting technology to create a memorable holiday experience for visitors of all ages. Old Sacramento’s Theatre of Lights blends a symphony of lights, sounds, and visual effects that transport the audience back in time with a reading of the famous poem The Night Before Christmas by Clement Clarke Moore. The narrated reading of the powerful and nostalgic poem is brought to life through theatrical elements and visually exciting lighting choreography that takes place on the balconies and rooftops of Old Sacramento’s historic buildings located on K Street between Front and 2nd Streets. Incorporated last year and back by popular demand, crowd-favorite villain Jack Frost will return this season with an expanded role to provide thrilling creative tension and spectacular visual excitement.

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - Fiddlers old and young, or people who just love violin music, are invited to meetings of the California State Old Time Fiddlers Association. Held at the Orangevale Grange Hall, the monthly fiddlers’ jam brings violinists out of the fret work.

The second-Sunday musical meet is patronized by up to 200 amateur, professional, and die-hard musicians of all ages. Some have beards whiter than the strings of their bows. Others are in grade school. The youngest struggle to get scaled-down fiddles under dimpled chins.

SACRAMENTO COUNTY, CA (MPG) - Supporters greeted the funeral procession of fallen Sacramento Sheriff’s Deputy Danny Oliver Monday afternoon as it traveled from Interstate 80 eastbound, down Greenback Lane. Law enforcement and first-responder agencies from all over California participated in the solemn show of solidarity, coming from as far away as San Luis Obispo, Riverside County, Inyo County, and even Sparks, Nevada. Hundreds of sheriff’s department, police, fire, and California Highway Patrol units accompanied the procession as it departed from the public funeral services held at Adventure Christian Church in Roseville and traveled to the East Lawn Cemetery in Sacramento for the family’s private burial service.

“All of us in the first responder industry, from the police to fire, we all consider each other brothers and sisters,” said Sacramento Metro Fire Department Captain Brad Reynolds. “It’s vitally important that we all share in this and show our support for their family members. As sad as an event as this is to bring us all together, it’s very heartfelt to see this all happen.”

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - With an overwhelming result nationwide on November 4th, most parts of the country sent notice to Washington that the status quo in leadership simply is not acceptable. The general populace is tired of the lousy economy (do your homework and research the real statistics), a crumbling infrastructure, failing policies, crushing new taxes, and the ongoing overreach of the Federal and State governments.

In the first few days after this election, it will seem like the politicians “heard us,” but we must be diligent and not let them “herd us” any longer. It is well past the time for more real Americans to stand up and live and lead in their everyday lives. Not only by thought, but also by action. We could get far more done working with our neighbors if we could only get government out of our way.

Sacramento Moustache Run

Posted: 11/6/2014

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - Movember is here, and soon the 2nd annual Sacramento Moustache Run will be here to support it by donating part of the profits to the American Cancer Society.

The 5K run will take place on a moustache-shaped course at West Sacramento’s River Walk Park on Saturday, November 8th at 11 a.m. But this is not just an ordinary run; participants are highly encouraged to grow or wear moustaches. There are multiple contests associated with the awesomeness of the moustache and costume. While the moustache-loving participants are running, they will come across two DJs and some Mad Barbers who want to give them a clean shave. No moustaches will actually be harmed at the event, but it makes the run very fun and interactive.
