It is the end of November already! I can’t believe how quickly this year has gone by. Just a few days before thanksgiving and I’m thinking about all that I’m thankful for. Friends, Family, and this wonderful city we call home!

Sacramento is filled with so much cheer this time of year! From the many streets covered in decorations to the shows and holiday events there is no way you could be bored this winter season.

Here is a short roundup of some things going on in our fair city this winter:
