Sacramento, California -- This column will be on the road next week, but before I go, a reminder that one of the Sacramento area's biggest annual car events is coming up Aug. 9: the sixth annual California Automobile Museum Car Cruise.
Cruisers of all ages and cars of virtually every stripe will start assembling at California State University, Sacramento, in the early afternoon. At 4 p.m. the colorful car parade will start making its way toward Fulton Avenue. The museum expects 400 cars to be parked along Fulton, which will be blocked off between El Camino and Marconi avenues, by 5 p.m.
From 5 to 8 p.m., the on-the-street party includes live music at multiple venues, a wide selection of vendors, plenty of beer, food trucks and much more, plus access to the services of the diverse food and retail merchants along Fulton Avenue. There is no charge for spectators.
A soup-to-nuts list of cruise awards at the Fulton Avenue staging area will wrap up the event.
