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.
