California Ad Day – Wednesday, March 19th, 2014  – State Capitol Park, Sacramento

Whether home is the rural countryside or the population dense metropolis, California agriculture affects us all. This leads to the importance of educating consumers and how agriculture enriches our daily lives. The smell of livestock wafting down L Street can mean only one thing: It’s Agriculture Day at the state Capitol. Festivities get under way at 10:30 a.m., when lawmakers and their staff are invited to explore the booths (and tractors) around the Capitol grounds near the west steps. The public gets to meander through from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

What a wonderful way to get a taste of Sacramento. Whether you are new to Sacramento, just visiting or an old timer you will have a great time. It's a world class tour, right here in Sacramento! The tour includes fun information and history about some beautiful old houses in downtown Sacramento, punctuated with 6 stops for terrific food and wine. I especially enjoyed watching Tony teach how to make homemade pasta at Sampino's and tasting his gelato. You walk a total of about 2 miles but it's over a 3 hour period so not too strenuous. It's not a tour for children, but any age adults would enjoy it. The max allowed is 16 but there were only 10 on our tour. The best part was how Lisa encourages every one to mingle and feel part of the group.
