Trick or Treat - FestiFall and Costume Contest in Historic Folsom

Real Estate Agent with GreatWest Realty DRE# 00827565

I had reason to find myself in Old Town Folsom today. I always enjoy the historic Gold Rush spirit that abides there. However, it was a different kind of spirit which had taken possession of ole Sutter Street today. There were witches, goblins and all sorts of characters roaming about.

In addition to the regular Saturday Farmer’s Market, locals were enjoying “Trick or Treat – FestiFall and Costume Contest.”

Not only children were involved in this activity, there was a cheeky group of witches who especially made their presence known. They identify on Facebook as “The Witches of Glazed Ham.” I know there has to be a story behind the name, but I was woe to coax it from them! Nor, could I find their Facebook group once home. Poof, they had vanished into thin air!


I take pictures for the purpose of remembering fond times.  I do not impose copyright restrictions on these photos, so you may feel free to use, or distribute as you wish.  However, should you need a Real Estate Professional in the Greater Sacramento area, I hope that you will contact me by email or by visiting my website 

Thank You!

What is that giant thing in your photo, Myrl? Did you know you can hop on the Light Rail in Sacramento and it will take you directly to Old Folsom. Of course, you have to sit next to people humming and rocking back and forth. Some haven't bathed. But it's more fun than driving!

Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents - Yes, I knew the end of the Light Rail line is in Old Folsom.  The giant thing is a huge white pumpkin that was artistically carved.  It sits on the street corner in front of Snook's Ice Cream Parlor.
