Holiday Events and Activities in Sacramento

Some people have a very commercialized concept of the Christmas season to the point that they mostly associate it with fancy gifts and exotic vacations. But the truth is, the holiday should be an opportunity to spend more time with friends and family to create fun, loving memories by doing holiday-themed activities together. 

Here, we list holiday events and activities in Sacramento that you and your family will surely enjoy. 


Go ice skating

Do you have a pair of ice skates collecting dust in your garage? Why not go ice skating on a beautiful, donut-shaped ice rink in the Historic Folsom Plaza? 

The ice rink is open between 10 am and 9:30 pm, with each skate session lasting 90 minutes. General admission costs $16 when purchased online and $18 at the ticket counter, while the entrance fee for children aged six years and younger is $13, which already includes skate rental. 

If you’re thinking about making reservations, choose your date and time carefully since the management does not allow refunds. 


Global Winter Wonderland

This theme park features illuminated landscapes and decorations perfect for families with kids. Additionally, it showcases villages from different cultures and heritages, which they change daily.

Other things you can expect from Global Winter Wonderland include laser light shows, live entertainment, a full carnival experience, fun rides, illuminated lanterns, a shopping center, and international cuisine. 

The theme park is open between November 19, 2021 and January 16, 2022 and is located at 1600 Exposition Blvd, Sacramento, CA. 


Wild Nights and Holiday Lights 2021 at Folsom City Zoo Sanctuary 

This special annual event allows visitors to marvel at the thousands of colorful lights decorating the zoo’s walkways, buildings, and animal exhibits. They can also step into the enchanted forest of decorated and illuminated trees and see nocturnal animals in action. 

The event is held December 10-12 and December 17-23, between 4:30 and 8:30 pm; the management limits the number of visitors to 2,000.

The admission fee costs $10 per person, but it’s free for children two years and under, while train tickets cost $5 per ride, with no fee for children under two. Meanwhile, all proceeds from the event will benefit the zoo animals. 


Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament 

Christmas was traditionally a Christian festival celebrating the birth of Jesus, but it has become a secular family holiday observed by both Christians and non-Christians alike. From then on, for most people, Christmas is a day for family, not faith. 

Nonetheless, some families have this tradition of going to the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament on Christmas Day. This church has become one of the most recognizable and iconic structures thanks to its religious artworks, stained-glass windows, and elegant clock tower. 

This house of worship has been attracting thousands of visitors every year with its Italian Renaissance-style facade and its historical significance in the city of Sacramento. 

Located near the California State Capitol Building, the cathedral offers a free guided tour after morning mass on Wednesday. 


Final Word

Holiday-themed activities not only build life-long memories but also break your family away from the daily routine, giving everyone opportunities to learn about new cultures and experiences. Even going to a local vacation spot is enough to make you happier and more relaxed when returning home. 

If you think Sacramento is a nice place to retire, raise family, or simply live to the fullest, check out this lovely mobile and manufactured home community called Country Squire Estates. 

Our family- and pet-friendly mobile homes in Sacramento come with a stunning landscape that includes the Arcade and Cripple Creeks and a forested enclave, although it also provides another remarkable benefit: It sits close to Citrus Heights and Roseville, which means that you’re just a short drive away from malls, restaurants, theaters, and shops. 

Additionally, the community has a communal garden patch where residents can grow their own fruits, vegetables, and ornamental plants. They have also organized a garden club, which occasionally hosts farmers’ markets in the park.

The Country Squire Mobile Home Park is a manufactured home community that is located near Citrus Heights, a city that is becoming a gastronomical hot spot. Living in Country Squire Mobile Home Park is an amazing experience, especially for a hardcore foodie. This manufactured home community in Sacramento, California is located near Citrus Heights, a city that is gradually emerging as a gastronomical hot spot. 


With an overwhelming number of food hubs, you might find it daunting to choose your next food trip, so we have decided to round up the top four Citrus Heights restaurants you should try. These food destinations are not just known for their scrumptious meal and hearty servings, but also for their reasonable prices. 

1. Texas Roadhouse

This town’s favorite serves all-American cuisine that leans more toward the Southwestern flavor. With their fall-off-the-bone ribs and juicy steaks that come with freshly made side dishes, they have become the go-to restaurant for anyone who needs to satiate his carnivorous cravings. 


Despite their hearty portions, the meals are reasonably priced, especially during their weekly special when steak is only $13.99.


Being the town’s favorite has its downside: The restaurant is often packed at dinner time, which makes it not the ideal place if you’re looking for something intimate. Nonetheless, even on a busy night, the wait isn’t that long, thanks to its friendly, attentive staff. 


If you’re into hearty, sinful meals and lively ambiance, the Texas Roadhouse should be your next food destination with its Texas-themed decor, impromptu singing, line dancers, and jukebox. 


Address: 6309 Sunrise Boulevard, Citrus Heights  Contact number: +1 916-726-7623

2. El Tapatio Mexican Restaurant

This family-owned authentic Mexican restaurant has been serving their patrons for more than 32 years with their made-from-scratch meals (literally no cans in their kitchen). While their menu has a long list of hearty, mouth-watering meals, they are most known for their carne asada, which is beef marinated and grilled, often served in thin strips either as a main course or a filling in burritos and tacos. 


Other signature dishes you may want to try: fajita and molcajete. But if you really want to splurge a little bit, we suggest that you visit them for a Sunday Brunch (9 am – 2 pm) and enjoy their buffet of chile verde, cheese enchiladas, beans, rice, horchata and mimosa, Mexican bread, and other pastries, chile colorado, taco bar, to name a few. 


Surprisingly, this well-loved Mexican food haven also caters to people with special diets with vegetarian-friendly and gluten-free meals. 


But as with any popular food destination, the waiting line is a bit long especially during their Sunday Brunch, so we suggest that you arrive early.

3. Felipe's Mexican Restaurant

Another popular Mexican food destination, Felipe’s is a family-owned business that has been serving its Citrus Heights patrons since 1983. Due to their success, the owners decided to open a second location in Folsom in February 2007.


For decades, the food restaurant has been well-loved by customers who want to taste authentic Mexican cuisine that is a bargain for the cost. They also have take-out and cater to parties, weddings, and conferences. 


Felipe’s is most famous for their combinaciones de la casa, which roughly translates to combinations of the house. They include refried beans, Spanish rice, special salsa, hot tortilla, homemade chips, and chiminga, which are beef chunks wrapped in an oversized flour tortilla deep-fried until golden brown and drizzled with sour cream, melted cheese, and guacamole. 


Even though the restaurant is tucked away in a shopping mall strip, it is often packed with people, and so the waiting might be a bit long unless you arrive early. 


Address: 959 Auburn Blvd, Citrus Heights

Contact: +1 916-722-5400

4. Sammy's Restaurant and Bar

Sammy’s is inside a casino building (Stone Creek Gambling Hall), making it a convenient food haven for gamblers. Nevertheless, their lamb ribs, duck tacos, Baba Ghanoosh with pita wedges, and New York-style pizzas are well-received even by non-gamblers who just want to satisfy their cravings. 


Compared to the previously mentioned restaurants, Sammy’s a little bit more pricey but still “reasonable,” especially their “small plates” which start at $3.  


Address: 6510 Antelope Rd, Citrus Heights

Contact: (Not Available)

Aside from the aforementioned food destinations, the Country Squire Mobile Home Park is also near Roseville’s malls, boutique shops, and theatres. But surprisingly, the mobile and manufactured home community has a small town “feel” as it is tucked away in a forested enclave of Arcade and Cripple Creeks.
