Mid-summer holiday and patriotic fun.  Lots of opportunities to celebrate in your Red, White, and Blue. Can you believe it?  Next week is July and with it, the 4th of July and all the fun and festivities for Independence Day that match our hot and dry Sacramento summers with many special outdoor activities.  Looks like the weather will have cooled down a bit to the mid 80’s so that’s quite comfortable to watch the parades, participate in the fun runs, go enjoy the festivities and still enjoy some warmth while watching the cascading lights of the fireworks pulse overhead in the evening. Some fun facts from history.com:
