 2nd Annual "Dog Days of Summer" Show    July 31 - September 20

A Benefit for Front Street Animal Shelter  

Come celebrate our canine and feline friends at "Dog Days of Summer", and support a great cause! This year's show will be a fundraiser for Front Street Animal Shelter, and will run from July 31st - September 20, 2014. Artwork includes paintings, sculptures, and a collection of original art refrigerator magnets. There's something for every animal lover!

A portion of each art sale will go to assist Front Street Animal Shelter with their mission to provide quality care for more than 11,000 animals that come to the shelter each year. Your support helps to provide emergency and advanced veterinary care for sick or injured animals, and funding for adoption programs that help shelter pets find their "forever" homes.  Your support helps save lives!

Yolo County Visitors Bureau Launches “Bak2Sac” Free Train Ride Program

Yolo County Visitors Bureau Launches “Bak2Sac” Free Train Ride Program

The Yolo County Visitors Bureau introduces a new program designed to get bicyclists to ride to Davis, patronize local businesses, and get a free train ticket back to Sacramento on the Capitol Corridor railroad. Called “Bak2Sac,” the program involves several businesses in Davis as co-sponsors who stand to benefit from increased visitation.

“The program is really pretty simple,” says Alan Humason, Executive Director of the YCVB. “Come to Davis on or with your bike, and visit participating businesses to pick up a voucher for a free train ticket back to Sacramento. The voucher is good for any train leaving after 7pm on weekdays and after noon on weekends. Turn in the voucher at the Davis Amtrak station and receive the train ticket, free. Hop on board with your bike and go Bak2Sac!”
