I’m Ed Smith, a Chico Personal Injury Lawyer. Chico is an economic, educational, and cultural center of the northern Sacramento Valley. As the most populated city in Butte County, Chico experienced a dramatic increase (more than 40%) in residents from 2000 to 2010. More people means more chances to socialize and go out of your comfort zone. I have gathered some events that range in their emphasis on exercise, spiritual, or social means of interaction. Continue reading below, and I am sure you will find an event that is suited to your own interests!
