It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Some home owners in the Fab 40’s have already started putting up their lights and more will join the displays over the next couple weeks.

Head up and down 40th through 49th streets, between J Street and Folsom Boulevard, and you’re bound to see some impressive light displays. Wander at your leisure by foot or get extravagant and hire a horse-drawn carriage to enjoy the festive show this amazing neighborhood puts on every year now through New Years. For all of those that want someone else to do the driving you have some options: Top Hand Ranch does horse drawn hayrides through the Fab 40’s. You can call them at (916) 655-3444 to make a reservation. You can also take the Sac Brew Bike tour to see the lights and hit up some pubs as well. Call them at 916-952-7973.

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)...
