Beyond the Veil: Spiritualism and the Occult

Beyond the Veil: Spiritualism and the Occult

Saturday, September 23, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. - 100 Years before the hippies, we had our own seekers after hidden knowledge, including some well-known city fathers and a congressional candidate! Last year’s sold out success is being reincarnated for one night only. We’ll meet sincere followers of Blavatsky, Crowley, Swedenborg and others, and a few double-jointed con artists preying on the gullible. With special guests, if the spirits are willing…

The tour convenes at the 10th Street gate. Early arrival is recommended. There is free street parking on surrounding streets. The tour costs $10 per person and tickets will be sold online only at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3079477. Note that no tickets will be sold at the gate. Ticket sales are limited to the first 50 sold. For more information, call 916-448-0811.

Mayor Christopher Cabaldon statement on homicides

“All of West Sacramento stands together in profound heartbreak, shocked by the vile domestic murder of three children in our community.
