‘Can-tastic’ kickoff Thursday in Folsom

Civic leaders and costumed characters will take to the ice at Folsom’s Historic Sutter Street Ice Rink at 8 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 18, for a “Can-tastic Holiday Kickoff,” collecting canned goods for the Twin Lakes Food Bank.

Sutter Street merchants are encouraging early donations to the food bank by offering special discounts to those who donate on Nov.18. The food drive continues at the ice rink through Dec. 3, during Folsom’s tree lighting ceremony.

Folsom Mayor Jeff Starsky will join Sacramento County Supervisor Roberta MacGlashan and other local officials to kick off the food drive and welcome skaters to Folsom’s coolest, new attraction.

Characters from the Sutter Street Theatre’s production of “Holiday in the Hills,” which opens Dec. 3, will be dressed in fashions of the 1800s. They’ll be collecting food donations in the front bucket of a Teichert Construction tractor — a reminder of the revitalization happening along Sutter Street.

“We’re celebrating the season of giving by welcoming everyone to Sutter Street and the ice rink, which is a great place to enjoy the transformation that’s taking place here,” said Jim Snook, owner of Snook’s Candies and president of the Folsom Historic District Association.

The Sutter Street Revitalization project will be substantially completed by Thanksgiving, with sidewalks, underground utilities and roadwork completed along the district’s main artery.

The ice rink is located behind 200 Wool St., near the railroad turnstyle. Visit Folsomicerink.com for more information.
