June is here! Time for a bunch of events

Aw where to begin. Somehow it got to be June, not too sure where May went. Our friend finished her dissertation and became Dr. Carolyn, the kids are out of school in El Dorado County, rafting is here and it has been warm enough to go already and we have several events coming up that might be of interest/or you may find us there.

June 13th --- Wagon Train and Placerville Founders Day. Celebrate Placerville's 155th birthday on Historic Main Street all afternoon with us. Placerville was founded 155 years ago, just a few miles from where gold was first discovered in California. To celebrate, Historic Main Street in Placerville closes to welcome the Highway 50 Wagon Train and host the Founders Day Street Faire with living history exhibits and re-enactments, gem-panning, fire engine displays, pony rides, costume contests, music, a decorated banners display and more from 1PM to 5PM. Free to the public.

June 18th-21 - The El Dorado County Fair comes back to town! This year's theme is "Hooves to Horsepower" and promises as much fun as always.

June 27th
Bell Tower Brewfest, 6PM to 9PM
This popular Placerville event will be hosted again by downtown merchants and will include a street closure for added enjoyment and safety for all patrons. Entertainment will feature the Bill Magee Blues Band, the Mark St. Mary Zydeco Band, and Trac 7 in different locations on Main Street. If you are interested in sampling over 40 different micro-brews, tickets will need to be purchased for patrons over 21 years of age. Tickets are limited and expected to sellout before that evening, so plan on getting them early. They will go on sale in late May for $30 at River City Bank, Tony Matthews The Wine Smith and Placerville Brewing in Placerville. Or, tickets can be purchased onl-ine with a credit card. For more info on this big fundraiser, please contact the Placerville Downtown Association at (530) 672-3436.
