gold2Bay seniors who missed the last Gold Rush have an opportunity to relive it October 11-13. The Coloma Gold Rush Live is an annual festival recreating life around Sutter’s Mill which will be turned into a bustling mining camp. Lessons in panning for gold headline a weekend that includes wagon rides, story telling miners, blacksmithing, candle and rope making and a village that showcases the no longer volatile mix of Mexican, Yankee, Chinese and Miwok cultures. Organizers promise a “modest” entry and parking fee.
