History Tour and Street Fair with LIVE music this Sunday in Sac.

  I dare say I’m no stranger to events offering the spirit and mind entertainment and enrichment, for the arts bring both and more in abundance. ‘Tis none the less an occasion most rare when this very nocturnal artist, of painfully sensitive eyes and well nigh combustible skin, shall be venture into daylight!
On Sunday, September 16, 2012, the Sacramento Old City Association (SOCA) will hold its 37th annual Historic Home Tour, featuring an inside look at seven residences, including the McClatchy Home (now known as the Ella K. McClatchy Library.)

In addition, a Street Fair will be held on 22nd Street between U and V Street, featuring local contractors and artisans specializing in historic home rehab and remodeling, history organizations, local businesses, and artists, including your own
Master Nick!
Live music will be performed by the Freebadge Serenaders, Parie Wood, Autumn Sky and the Garage Jazz Architects. Gourmet popsicles by Popcycle will be available for sale. In conjunction with the SOCA Home Tour, many homes in the Newton Booth, Poverty Ridge and Alhambra neighborhoods (bounded by R Street, 19th Street and Highway 50) will feature homemade signs detailing neighborhood history, part of the “If This House Could Talk” project. http://ifthishousecouldtalk.wordpress.com/ has more information. In addition, a draft survey of the Newton Booth neighborhood (sponsored by SOCA) will be available for public review at the street fair, in preparation to nominate the neighborhood as a historic district.
