Here in Sacramento, we are truly blessed with accessible community opportunities. Consider Campus Commons, South Land Park, Midtown, Downtown, East Sacramento, various regions in Davis, Serrano in El Dorado Hills, Hollywood Park, Sierra Oaks Vista or Fair Oaks Village; the list is almost endless. Naturally as population sizes grow, the sense of community begins to decline. Unseen Heroes and The Oak Park Business Association won’t let Sacramento succumb to a lost-community despite our steady population increase. To rebel against this trend, they will be hosting GATHER, an outdoor dining event accompanied by artisanal food vendors, live music, craft beer areas, local designers and children’s areas. GATHER will take place every second Thursday from 5 to 9 p.m. from June 12 to Oct. 9, 2014, at Oak Park (at Broadway and 3rd Avenue). Admission is free, so bring your friends, family, neighbors, visitors, pets and children. Long live the community of Sacramento!
