Sacramento Summer Events Your Family Won’t Want To Miss

Summer is a great time to be in Sacramento. Sure, some of the days are pretty warm, but that just makes for better swim parties with friends. And the evenings and nights lend themselves perfectly to being outside relaxing by the pool, eating at a street-side café, or taking a stroll along the Sacramento or American Rivers. There are also an abundance of family friendly events and activities all summer long, many of which are free (woo hoo!) Take a look at this list and make your plans now to enjoy a wonderful summer with your family.
