New Years Eve, Old Sacramento

old sacramento New Year's Eve

Most of you are probably aware of the shooting that happened after the fireworks show and I offer my most sincere condolances to those you lost family and/or freinds. I did debate whether or not I should put up this post, but I believe that the event itself was deserving of a review and hopefully tradgedy will not be a recurring theme in future years. And now, back to your regularly scheduled sillyness.

Sacramento has been doing fireworks for New Year’s Eve over the river in Old Sacramento every year since 2000. I figured I should actually try to get out and do something for New Year’s Eve and as this one was free, it seemed my best option.

It’s New Years, glowy plastic MUST be sold.

And, apparently, souls must be saved.

Aww, the Lady Adams building is all gussied up.

Apparently the Depp Fried Foodstuffs trend has migrated out of the fair circuit.

Some tween cover band thingy. Thankfully, I am neither a tween nor possessing of a tween relative so I made my exit quickly.

And now, the fireworks:

Somewhat hard to see, but there’s a whole lotta smoke drifting across the extremely well-lit Ziggurat Building.

Glow in the dark juggler. Kinda happy that I wasn’t horribly impressed and left the area earlier than I had planned.

Awesome-O-Meter: 4 Awesomes Yes, the night ended on a bad note, but that’s not really the fault of the event. I liked the nice variety of foods/drinks for sale and there was no shortage of blinky/neon things to buy. And as always, free events are always pluses. I’m sure I’ll be back again.
