Hello Myrl - I like that glimpse of the poster you included here - the colors in it certainly make me "think" festive is on the agenda.

Michael Jacobs - That poster quickly got my attention too.  I plan on attending.  There are several other venues in Old Sacramento as well.

It sounds like a very fun event.  We were just in Gulf Shores, Florida, and they had all of their decorations up for Mardi Gras too.  It was fun to see.

Hello Myrl,  My first thought with the name was towards a Christmas function.  Sounds like a good time no matter the time of year.  Enjoy.  mdm

Myrl Jeffcoat - the idea of a Tree Parade is different and unique to me. How wonderful! As for that Poster, it is a one of a kind! The artistic vision, colors, and success of that drawing is really, really good! 

If I could be there, I would! 

May you have a happy weekend!

Old Sacramento and The City of Trees Parade... what fun - love it - my kind of day.  You said you were planning to attend.  Hope nothing stopped you and that you had a fantastic time.  I love Food Trucks.  Usually those 'Trucks' serve some really tasty specials...some talented chefs!

Hi Myrl, 

I just can't believe that we are getting ready to start the Easter Season.  Yikes!  This should be a great way to start it off.
