The Sacramento Salmon Festival is a festival which annually takes place on the American River in Sacramento. This year (2000) the event takes place October 14 and 15, at the Nimbus Hatchery near Hazel Avenue. Admission is free but parking is 5 dollars. This event boasts such attractions as a salmon barbecue, 'live' wildlife demos, river walks, live music, an 'amazing maze', a salmon aquarium, kayaking, river rafting (on a very slow river), puppetry, and the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet 'Seemore Salmon'. Don't miss it!
