Escabar_MimiThe Golden Gate Bridge opened to vehicles on May 28, 1937. The bridge is not just a connector between two points, it really is a beautiful work of art and a statement of getting things done. Sure glad it is not being built now because it may not happen.

 

Art on Main

Be sure to get out of your vehicle to enjoy the works of art now gracing Main Street in Placerville. The Banners on Parade is a public art project by artists and supported by businesses, individuals and the city of Placerville that will be hanging on the light poles until the Art and Wine Festival on Oct. 18. The banners will then be auctioned to raise money for next year’s banners. To learn more contact placervilledowntown.com or 530-672-3436.
