By
Real Estate Agent with GreatWest Realty DRE# 00827565

I spent a couple of hours channeling my inner yesteryears this morning. Old Sacramento is currently celebrating Gold Rush Days.  Always a crowd pleaser, the Events and Performances are FREE to the public, with ample parking.

It was nice to chat with a few old timers!

Hi Myrl- as a kid from Texas, who had cowboy boots, a hat and side-arm, and a bicycle for a horse, I'd love this!

Myrl Jeffcoat - Your title and photos put a big smile on my face. I would enjoy participating in the celebration of "Gold Rush Days!' Though the concept of searching for gold isn't new, it's always fun and a thrill to know there are people always out there hunting for golden opportunities!
