It’s all happening in Downtown Roseville
By: Jan Shellito Roseville redevelopment manager
Downtown Roseville truly is the heart of Roseville and it’s where you’ll find those special events and activities that bring our community together. Come visit Downtown Roseville and have a great time at any one or several of this month’s special events. From running to art to wine and candy, there’s something for everyone this fall and winter. Just in October alone, there are four events on the calendar. n First, on Oct. 11 the South Placer Breast Cancer Endowment and Roseville Connects Young Professionals’ Organi-zation are teaming up for the HOT Pink 5K event (HOT stands for Historic Old Town Roseville). The race will start and finish in Historic Old Town and take participants through some of Roseville’s oldest and most beautiful neighborhoods. You can help raise funds for breast cancer research by participating in this fun event as a runner, walker or event sponsor. Proceeds from this event will benefit the UC Davis Breast Cancer Center. Find out more and register at www.rose-villeconnects.com. n From 5-10 p.m., Saturday, Oct 18, Placer County wineries, galleries, and artists will be showcased in Downtown Roseville. The Kobra Crush 29 Wine and Art Festival brings an art show, live music, food, wine tasting, wine classes and a brew pub to the 300 and 400 blocks of Vernon Street. Amazing food from Crush 29 and great music by Hip Service, Boyz Night Out, Steelin’Dan, and the Jerry Martini Trio will fill the streets. The event is sponsored by Placer Valley Tourism.
