History on the Banks of the American River: Aug 15

Posted July 24, 2009 by Malina

csparksI don’t know what you all think, but how is this for the perfect way to end a day on the American river–no, no, not a cold beer and a slice of pizza over at Marco’s pizza or a fantastic steak at Cafe Mahjaic……No I’m talking serious fun here: a history lesson over at the Marshall Gold Discovery State Park!  Come on now that’s a party! 

No but really, think about it–you have the kids, you just had an exciting day on the water, you got a little too much sun and you want to kick back and have someone else do the entertaining of said kids for awhile.  So, hop in the car, drive 2 minutes from the AO River Center and let Kimberly Shiningstar take over with an evening of storytelling and Native American history.  The event starts at 7:30  and runs ’till 9pm–that’s kid bedtime in my world, and then the adults can stay up around the campfire and chat under the stars.  Marshmallows optional.

For more info on the event, visit the Marshall Gold Association website.
