If you are new to Folsom, or are just visiting, Folsom Live is a great way to explore the historic district and learn a little about the town. You’ll see shops, restaurants, museums and plenty of history. When you’re not busy peeking in store windows, you can enjoy great music provided by a dozen bands on 10 stages. This is one of the Folsom Chamber of Commerce’s biggest events of the year and helps fund many programs put on by the organization. One of the most important things to remember at Folsom Live is to have a ride home lined up well in advance. Designate a sober driver from your group or take public transportation and taxis. I’d hate to see someone ruin a great evening, and put others at risk, by getting behind the wheel after having a few too many drinks. How many is too many? If you’re driving, it only takes one. Inside this special guide to Folsom Live, you’ll find a map of the event, band schedules, an overall look at the party, entertainment highlights and a beginner’s guide to getting the most out of Folsom Live. Explore the guide before showing up at the party and know what you’re getting yourself into — an evening of fun and frivolity. Don Chaddock can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
