You are not required to register to promenade with us. Look for our donation chest on the registration table which allows for better prizes and helps to pay for all the fantastic freebies we are adding for the children this year. Our organization is all volunteer and all proceeds over expenses go to our chosen charitable cause. This year we will be supporting the American River Parkway Foundation.

Please consider sponsoring the Promenade. Find out more here:

 Pre-Promenade activities on the wharf/embarcadero begin at 9am and culminate at 12pm. Attractions include: The Dive Bar Mermaids & Mermen, Pixie Tribe face painting & GIANT bubbles, various vendors and free activities.
