Around Town: Country Style!

This next weekend is the Marysville Peach Festival. My grandmother's family had a peach ranch up in the Yuba area so I'm partial to the yummy fruit. An added bonus about this festival is that its free (admission and parking!)

They have live music both nights - The Chris Gardner Band on Friday night (July 15) and Tijuana Taxi on Saturday (July 16.) This is definately an affordable family outing for anyone in the Sacramento area. If you want some exercise you can participate in the Peach Fest 5K Run / Walk as well.

You can stay local and get a little country too since July 14th is Country Night at the River Cats. For $16 (and up) you can go see the River Cats play the Grizzlies and get a cowboy hat with your ticket! I might just go and bring my own cowboy hat.

Want to stay local and not so country? Check out the poetry reading at the Crocker on Friday, July 15 featuring the Squaw Valley Writers.
