The government shutdown is effecting everyone is different ways. For instance, our local recreation trails ( Magnolia and Cronin Ranch) are closed, but the South Fork American River is still flowing and the Historic Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park is not only open, but preparing for their Annual event, Coloma Gold Rush Live! With furloughs as far as the eye can see, this is good news for locals, as well as visitors to the the Coloma Lotus Valley! You are invited to attend their wonderful Annual event, Coloma Gold Rush Live, on October 11-13, 2013.
Experience life as it was during the 1850 California Gold Rush era. Enjoy live music, live history tent encampments, historic trade demonstrations, and a merchants market. There is gold panning for kids and adults, as well as sawmill demonstrations and historic reenactments —you will feel like you are rubbing shoulders with the adventurers and historical figures who helped create the worldwide rush to California. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day, in Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park.
