Heard Around Folsom – Cinco, Cars, and Cops

Posted on: May 4, 2018


Well folks, it’s Cinco de Mayo weekend, and the margaritas will be flowing. Lots of parties to choose from. Hacienda del Rio‘s got live bands from 5 to 10p in their parking lot… Powerhouse Pub‘s got Inspector 71 playing, with dj at Scarlet’s… Cantina Alley in Sac has a party goin’ on from 3 to midnight. Live bands… There’s Cinco de Old Sacto in Old Sacto, of course… and The Union in Roseville has a big one going on as well. Whereever you go, bring a designated driver or catch a Lyft. You don’t want to spend the rest of the night with the cops… Speaking of cops, you can meet up with them on friendlier terms at Folsom Police Foundation’s ‘Meat and Greet‘ barbecue. Meet Folsom’s finest, have a burger or a dog, check out some cool equipment, and your $10 donation goes to the Foundation’s youth programs… Also happening on the 5th is the Historic Murer House Foundation’s annual Italy on Wheels, featuring classic Italian cars and bikes, with pizza and Italian beer, too!… Work it all off Sunday at the 8th annual Great Scott Bike and Walk  event. Scott Road and the surrounding area will be closed from 8am to 3pm. Enjoy 30 miles of country roads on bike or on foot… Just another beautiful Folsom weekend. Be safe, and have a great one.

Interesting stuff coming up…Folsom Parks & Rec is hosting a community workshop for the Proposed Humbug-Willow Creek Trail Crossing. They’re considering erecting a bridge to enable cyclists and pedestrians to cross Folsom Blvd to access the trails. As one who’s been frequently stuck at that crossing signal long after a cyclist has passed, I’m all for it. Have an opinion, want to learn more? Be at the Folsom Community Center this Thursday, the 22nd ant 630p… If the city website is correct, that same date and time they’ll be holding a brainstorming and planning meeting for the annual Community Service Day. They’re looking for ideas for projects. I’m thinking maybe cleaning up our trails. What do you think?…Can hardly wait for Folsom’s Annual Eggstravaganza on March 31. It’s a fun event for families, and pretty amazing to see 4 fields scattered with 25,000 eggs, separated by age group, wiped out in a matter of seconds. When it comes to gettin’ candy, those kids are fast and efficient… Speaking of eggs, there’s a great exhibit at the Folsom’s Gallery at 48 Natoma. ‘Which Came First?’ features a series of imaginative chicken and rooster paintings by Loretta Armstrong, mixed-media drawings and paintings of chickens and Ukranian eggs by Karen Hunziker, and beautiful Pysanky painted eggs by Teresa Mihalko Harbert… Just a bit outside, you can Sip into Spring on the Placer Wine Trail. Twenty bucks gets you a souvenir glass and tastings at the member wineries…Got a tip or tidbit you think the should know about? Let me know, and if I agree, I’ll post it here and/or our Facebook page.
