Get Ready for "Rollin' on the River" September 14! | Arts & Culture
It’s time to celebrate Sacramento-style when the Historic Old Sacramento Foundation presents “Rollin’ on the River” on Friday evening, September 14, 2012*. Honoring Sacramento restaurant owner Lina Fat and saluting the 100th birthday of the iconic I Street Bridge, the festive event begins with a VIP Reception – emceed by Dave Walker and Lois Hart -- at the Sacramento History Museum followed by a memorable and spirited River Cruise aboard the Empress Hornblower.
As the Empress Hornblower cruises down the Sacramento River, adult-only guests will enjoy scrumptious food, 1850s-style gambling, and a champagne toast saluting the
I Street Bridge when cruising underneath the local icon. This festive fundraising event will also include a silent auction with all proceeds supporting the ongoing and invaluable historic programming provided by the Historic Old Sacramento Foundation.
“Rollin’ on the River” tickets cost $75 for the River Cruise only and $125 to attend the VIP Reception and the River Cruise. Advance tickets for “Rollin’ on the River” are available now by calling 916-808-7059, online at www.historicoldsac.org or in person at the Sacramento History Museum located at 101 I Street.
*Due to scheduling conflicts, this event was rescheduled from an earlier date in June.
