Heard Around Folsom… Car Show, Wine Tasting and more…

It’s been a while since I’ve done a ‘Heard Around Folsom’.  Let’s not waste time. Here are some random and cool events coming up in and around Folsom… Cars and Coffee returns to Palladio for their weekly car show. See everything from Model A’s to muscle cars, from 8 to 10 every Saturday… Visconti’s Restaurant is going to be honored as Folsom’s Family Business of the Year at the Folsom Chamber of Commerce‘s annual awards luncheon. Visconti’s is the place where everyone is treated like family, and the food is great. Come celebrate and honor our community leaders at this annual event… The current exhibit at 48 Natoma, Folsom’s public art gallery, is called ‘3 Women Photographers’. See the unique perspectives of these three, featuring their best wildlife and nature shots. Perhaps stealing the show, the community gallery will feature artwork created by the animals of the Folsom Zoo Sanctuary. The public is invited to celebrate both exhibits at the free opening reception on Friday, March 29, 2019 from 6:00 to 8:00, with refreshments, wine and live guitar music by Gabe Becker. As an added treat, we also anticipate that several smaller animal artists from the zoo (perhaps the Funk the skunk and Boss Hog the hedgehog) will be present at the reception for visitors to meet and watch them in-action painting during the reception. The painting will then be available for purchase!.. Got the need for speed? Head over to the Prairie City SVRA March 22 and 23, for the  Metalcloak Ultra 4 Stampede. Over 100 drivers are expected to compete over a 2 mile lap course, completely visible to spectators, filled with rock obstacles, tight turns and go-fast sections. This is a great, family-friendly spectator event. If you’ve ever wanted to see ULTRA4 racing in person, you won’t want to miss this unique event!.. for something a bit mellower (earlier in the day anyway)  Sip into Spring on the Placer Wine Trail. On March 23 and 24, your ticket gets you a souvenir glass, and complimentary food and wine tastings at participating wineries on the trail…  That’s it for now. That ought to keep you busy. Look for my podcast in the near future. Have a topic, tip or event we should know about? Drop me a line.
