This Labor Day weekend Sacramentans have lots of activities to choose from. In Old Sacramento more than 200 tons of dirt will be dumped on the streets of Old Sacramento as the annual festival "turns back the clock," Gold Rush Days, transforming Sacramento’s historic district into a scene straight out of the 1850s.

The event is FREE, September 3-5, Fri 9am-4pm, Sat 11am-7pm, Sun 11am-7pm, Mon 11am-4pm.
