On October 13 and 14, Coloma Gold Rush Live took place at Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park. This event drew more than 1,000 visitors each day, according to Gold Discovery Park Association Director Deb Jensen. She said the small group of event organizers, who have been planning the event since last spring, were very pleased with the turnout and received overwhelmingly favorable feedback from attendees.
Much credit goes also to the more than 125 volunteers, who did jobs ranging from crosswalk safety and hospitality, to interpretive historical reenactment. Thank you to all the people who worked to make this a fun and educational day for the public!
