Easter Dog

The Sacramento SPCA’s booth was a hit at Saturday’s Easter Egg Hunt at Stonehouse Park. Why? Easter doggies available for adoption! This one, named Zelda, found a home Saturday. When the hundreds of kids weren’t asking if they could please-please-please take a dog home, they were eating cotton candy, playing with balloon art, walking through a petting zoo and, of course, chasing Easter eggs. The Kiwanis Club, sponsor of the event, provided 6,000 eggs for three egg hunts, divided by age, and the eggs disappeared into Easter baskets in about 12 seconds.

Kiwanis Crab Feed

Kiwanis Crab Feed

Red squareSee 41 photos from the event

There was 750 pounds of crab for the cracking at Saturday night’s Kiwanis Crab Feed at St. Vincent DePaul Catholic Church, but that wasn’t the only delicacy offered. Servers circulated with pricey caviar and two kinds of icy vodka, and patrons like Sam Somers Jr. swallowed a bump of caviar from the back of their hand and chased it with a small chug of vodka. That's Nancy Mazzoni serving the caviar. About 300 people chatted at their tables or bid on dozens of silent-auction items as music played. The event was a Kiwanis partnership with the Knights of Columbus. The servers were members of the Kiwanis Key Club, high schoolers who are the Kiwanians of the future. Click photos for larger images.

Turkey Trot

It was a frosty morning for the sixth annual Thanksgiving Turkey Trot, but Jen McNamara, left, and Laurel Condon made the most of it with their turkey headgear. About a hundred adults and kids took part in the run. This year's race was lengthened to a bit more than three miles, according to organizer Charlotte Dubey.  The run, which benefits the Fisher House Foundation, offered special thanks this year to Summerfest, which provided insurance coverage. The run started and ended at the Gazebo. At the finish line, awaiting the male and female winners, were homemade holiday pies. Click the image below to see a panorama of the participants as they await the start.
