Memorial Day Weekend Events

I will be working all weekend, however there is a lot going on...being a native Sacramentan, I have been to the County Fair and the Jazz Jubilee. Both are great events, and it appears that the weather will be cooler than the typical 100 degrees that we are used to for these events...

Sacramento County Fair runs from May 22 - May 26 and is at Cal Expo. There are rides, exhibits, concerts, games, etc. Admittance is actually free, but parking is $8.

Sacramento Jazz Jubilee runs from May 23 - May 26 and is in mainly in Old Sacramento, but there are also performances at other locations like Raley Field (Rivercats Stadium), the Crest Theatre, various downtown Sacramento locations, etc. Ticket prices vary from $10 - $100 depending on how old you are and how many days you want to attend.

Also, if you have been listening to my radio show, you will have already heard about the Memorial Day tribute at Mount Vernon Memorial Park in Citrus Heights. Starting at 11am on the 26th, there will be a celebration to honor veterans with live music, jet flyover, giant flag parachute jump, etc. For more information, call 916-929-1251.
