Does the newly improved weather have you itching to leave your diligent desk post? Are you the person in this picture? Well, put the hydrocortisone cream away and get your nose out of those books! Here is a list of unique and fun events to shake up your weekend. Go forth and indulge, dear midterm warriors, busy parents, business professionals and happy retirees.
This event will feature a silent and live auction of donated items in order to raise funds for grants and fellowships awarded by the King Hall Legal Foundation. KHLF is run entirely by volunteers and about 95% of proceeds go directly to much-deserving students! Children and four-legged friends are asked to stay home. The event runs from 6:30 to 11:00 P.M. at Freeborn Hall. Cocktail attire is requested and tickets are $15.
Hosted by the Community Services Department, 12 final performers will be competing at the Veterans Memorial Theater. The prize is $200 and a chance to perform at this year’s 4th of July celebration! Advance tickets are $7; at the door they are $9.
Supercross stars of tomorrow can be found among the arenacross stars of today. The tracks are challenging and riders will entertain with impressive hang times, bursts of speed, and close contact racing. This event is located at the Arco Arena. Tickets are $20.50 for adults and $7.50 for kids. This event also runs on Sunday, which is Amateur Day. (Does that mean more crashes?)
The Brazilian Center for Cultural Exchange of Sacramento is hosting its first annual Carnaval. The event will feature Samba performances, live music, Brazilian food and drinks, and vendors. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. The event will be at 1616 I Street in Downtown Sacramento.
This fish hatchery raises over 400,000 steelhead and 4 million salmon every year. You can explore the exhibits at the Visitor Center, walk along the River Discovery Trail, and feed young fish in the raceways. Bring lots of nickels for the food dispensers! Also, if you can make it out to the hatchery on Tuesdays, you can see workers actually spawning steelhead trout. The hatchery is open daily and admission is free.
I’d love to hear about your weekend adventures and about these events, since I won’t be able to make it to all of them. And check back Monday to see what I end up reviewing! 🙂
