Old Sacramento - Gold Rush Days

Once a year Sacramento celebrates its heritage by "turning back the clock,"
transforming Sacramento’s historic district into a scene straight out of the
1850s. Scheduled every year around the Labor Day Weekend, more than
200 tons of dirt are dumped on the streets of Old Sacramento to reenact
the Gold Rush years along with costumed re-enactors, Wild West gun fights,
musicians playing period instruments, and many aspects of life during the
Gold Rush will be highlighted during the four-day event. These photos were
taken between September 3rd & 5th, 2010. A total of 112 photos taken by me.




































































































































































































































Thank you and have a great day!

Beautiful.

Are all of those buildings real or are they facades?

Also, are the streets always dirt to give the area an old style or are they just covered in dirt for this festival?

Most of the buildings are originals. There are one or two recreations, however.

The streets are cobblestone so that cars can drive through. The dirt's only added for this event.

Great set, innov8. One of your best yet. You have a certain style, it's almost as if it's not forced at all, that the colors and composition happen naturally. Keep up the great work.
