Gold Rush Days

 

Gunslinger

Gunslinger!

 

From pirates to Coyboys, what century is this again?  Had a great labour days weekend. The city of Sacramento rolled back the streets to the 1800’s (well sort of) They brought in tons of dirt and closed off old Sacramento to car traffic so there were only horses and horse drawn conveyances to be seen.

They even brought in some entertaining gunslingers to amuse the crowds and had calvary and canon fire demonstrations.

That one rattled some windows.

There were several bands playing throughout the day and lots of good bbq. Fun to see old Sac looking the way we might imagine it looking years ago.

A very entertaining day and I look forward to seeing what they do next year.
