New Year's Patch The Sacramento Walking Sticks continue the tradition of putting on two different walks on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.

Our New Year's Eve event is back at the Pioneer Congregational United Church of Christ across from Sutter's Fort! As usual, we'll be enjoying their fellowship hall and big kitchen. Plan on joining our amazing potluck after you finish your walk. For New Year's Eve, we will be walking through bright and celebratory streets of downtown Sacramento to enjoy the spirit of the New Year.

Our New Year's Day event is fun for the whole family. Come early and have some breakfast goodies before heading out on your walk and plan on joining our amazing potluck tables with us when you finish your walk. On New Year's Day, we'll be walking in midtown and downtown areas viewing art and architecture in the different neighborhoods. As always, we'll be enjoying the utter quiet of the city, seeing new things and learning more interesting details about Sacramento.

Each day has its own routes. Come prepared for cold and rain w/appropriate clothing and flashlights. Bring your friends, family and co-workers.
