Mardi Gras is a big night of partying and drinking in Old Sacramento, but extra security has been added in light of a deadly New Year’s Eve shooting.
Around 3,000 people are expected to attend celebrations Saturday. Four extra police officers were hired by the Old Sacramento Business Association to help with security.
Each bar will also be a part of an open communication network. If someone causes problems at one bar, they’ll be banned from the others as well.
Old Sacramento’s Mardi Gras celebration will feature food, drinks, stand-up comedy and live music. For more information, visit the event’s web page here.
