Oak Park’s popular Gather event will launch in Rocklin this summer

Come together, right now, over in Rocklin. Unseen Heroes, the team behind Oak Park’s popular Gather nights, is exporting its warm-weather community event series to the Sacramento suburb beginning in June. Gather began in 2014 and has since grown into a happening outdoor affair with local food, music and art that brings an average of over 3,000 people to the streets of Oak Park’s Triangle District each time it’s held. Rocklin’s version of the family-friendly (and dog-friendly) event will be held every fourth Thursday from June to October at Quarry Park, which was redeveloped last year into a new 17-acre gathering place with nature trails and an amphitheater and now hosts events like Rocklin’s outdoor summer concert series and Shakespeare festival....

SacTown Social Bikes, a new tour company based in downtown Sacramento, is bringing more pedal power to the capital city. Co-owners Ruben Amaya and his fiancée Lalena Nelson have been slowly rolling out bikes for tours since early February, and tentatively plan to officially launch March 3 to coincide with the opening of Cantina Alley— a new Mexican eatery in midtown, which will be one of the company’s two pickup locations, along with downtown’s Vallejo’s Restaurant.
