Fab 40’s Christmas Lights

Posted by on Nov 29, 2016 in Events, Fab 40's | 9 comments

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas and I’m getting calls asking for details about the Fab 40’s Christmas Lights! The long holiday tradition of impressive light displays in the Fab 40’s is anticipated and enjoyed by so many neighbors as well as people that drive in from miles away to look at them. Some home owners in the Fab 40’s have already started putting up their lights and and more will join the displays over the next couple weeks. By the end of next weekend the homes will be ablaze with dazzling displays. You can drive up and down the streets (40th-49th, between J Street and Folsom Blvd.), wander at your leisure by foot or get extravagant and hire a horse-drawn carriage to enjoy the festive show the this amazing neighborhood puts on every year. Go on a weeknight an you won’t have quite as many people out at the same time or join the biggest gawking crowds possible on Christmas weekend. Bundle up, bring your hot chocolate and get into the holiday spirit with another amazing year of the Fab 40’s Christmas...

38th Street Blood Drive

Posted by on Jul 13, 2015 in East Sac, Events, Fab 40's | 0 comments

This Thursday, July 16, is the seventh annual 38th Street Blood Drive. As in all the previous years, this year’s drive is hosted by Pat & Alice McAuliffe. From 3-7pm, two bloodmobiles from BloodSource will be parked in front of the McAuliffe’s home at 1141 38th Street, collecting donations to help area hospitals meet the needs of patients over the busy summer months. The goal this year is to collect 45 pints. I was very happy to give a pint last year and plan on doing it again this year! This time I’m going to save some room because the McAuliffe’s have more than just cookies and juice for the participants! To keep things moving smoothly, appointments are requested to donate blood. To schedule an appointment for this event, go to bloodsource.org/drives and enter location code M567. Or for more information, call (916)...

If you’re feeling extra patriotic this 4th of July, you’re in luck if you live in East Sac. First, the River Park Neighborhood Association will hold its annual Fourth of July Festival at Glenn Hall Park. Starting at 10am, the Firecracker antique car parade and kids bike parade wind their way through the neighborhood to the park. The festival includes games, races, art displays, live music and refreshments. Or you can get yourself into the red, white and blue mood with the East Sacramento Fourth of July parade, which begins at 11am on the corner of 41st and M Streets. With this parade, many of the people that come to watch end up walking along with the participants. It’s a great show of East Sac neighborhood pride and togetherness as well as a way to celebrate our nation’s freedoms.  ...
