Things to Do Around Sacramento

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento personal injury lawyer. Christmas may have passed, but the holiday vibes still permeate the city. There are great things being offered for Sacramento residents of all ages.

The Joy of Christmas Lights

Until the end of December, don’t miss the Christmas Lights Drive Thru. This event, sponsored by the Bayside Church, is in its second season and let’s you take the family for a drive through a sparkling wonderland. Admission is free. Tickets are needed to avoid traffic backups. Just text LIGHTS to 56316. It takes about 20 minutes to complete the tour. Don’t forget your camera and bring your ticket. Go to the website to learn about times, which vary.

Art Extravaganza

If you enjoy art, you’ll be enthralled with Kurt Fishback’s four-year odyssey in documenting women artists in their artistic habitats. Admission is free. The exhibit is open from 11:30 in the morning until 5:00 in the evening each day at the Pence Gallery located at 212 D Street in Davis until January 14. Call (530) 758-3370 for more information.

Ice Skating in Roseville

Skatetown Ice Arena at 1009 Orlando Avenue in Roseville is a haven for ice skaters of all ages. With two indoor rinks and one outdoors, it offers a skater’s paradise. The outside rink is open until January 15 and offers a musically choreographed twinkling light experience. You can purchase a pass for $12 to $15, depending on age, that can be used for the afternoon from 2:00 until 5:00. They have staff available to tie skates and fit them too, as well as give free skating lessons. Choose to ride in a sled or use a bobby? They are available to be rented. There is a cafe and free parking. Call (916) 783-8550

“Sound of Music”

If you love the “Sound of Music,” then you know it has been shown for five years at the Crocker Art Museum at 210 O Street. This year will be no exception with contests for the best costume, yodeling and door prizes along with singing till your heart’s content. You can purchase tickets online for the December 28 event from 6:00 in the evening until 9:00 at night.

Downtown Ice Rink

For those of you in Sacramento, you have to go no further than St. Rose of Lima Park at 7th & K Streets. Join in the fun for the 26th season until January 15th. The rink is open all week long. Go to their website to check hours. The cost is $12 for general admission and includes skate rentals. For kids six or under, the cost of admission is half that and also includes skate rental. You can also rent gloves, helmets or a locker or an ice scooter too. There are sponsored discounts, including the Sacramento Kings Kids Club, the Sacramento Regional Transit and the Western Health Advantage.

Midtown Farmers Market

If you love shopping for fresh food, visit the Midtown Farmers Market year-round every Saturday except December 30.  Located at 20th Street between J & K in Sacramento, the market is open from 9:00 in the morning until 2:00 in the afternoon in the winter. The market has locally grown foods and arts and crafts as well as prepared foods.
