Time Travel Weekends
July 7 - August 26, 2012
Get ready to step back in time when the past mingles with the present once again in Old Sacramento! For the third consecutive summer, visitors to Old Sacramento will enjoy lively and interactive street theatre as part of the hugely popular “Time Travel Weekends” to delight guests near and far. The streets of Old Sacramento will come to life with talented performers who put on spontaneous and often-elaborate skits and performances.
Special performances are scheduled on four stages located throughout Old Sacramento including in the Eagle Theatre, Victorian Academy (north end of Train Depot), Pioneer Park, and Waterfront Park. Additionally, the talented performers will roam the streets of Old Sacramento throughout the scheduled weekends, putting on spontaneous and often-elaborate skits and performances so visitors can step back in time to the 1850s, 1860s, and 1870s.
