For those of us who are stuck with enjoy taking our children places, check out the two stages in Old Sacramento featuring performances, dance workshops, booths and children’s activities on Sunday. The goal of this event is to promote multiculturalism and expose children (and adults, for that matter) to people, experiences, traditions and cultures they may not normally be able to enjoy.

Here’s the best part: Sunday’s festivities are *FREE*! Yippee!!! Take the family to Old Sacramento from 10AM-5PM to check out the fun. For more information click here. You can also see the schedule of performers by clicking here.

Alice in Wonderland

July 3, 2009


I don’t believe it is ever too early to expose children to theater, even if you have to sit in the grass and let your baby crawl around instead of watching the show. Lucky for East Sac Moms, the Runaway Stage’s Storybook Children’s Theater is presenting “Alice in Wonderland” on July 11, 18 and 25. Show times are 12PM and 2PM and admission is only $5!

The Runaway Stage is located at the 24th St. Theater at 2791 24th St. Contact 916.207.1226 with questions.

Take the whole family… and write us afterwards let us know what you thought. Email us at or leave a comment on this post.
