Denio’s Celebrates Dad’s Day on June 16th

Denio’s Roseville Farmers Market and Swap Meet will celebrate Dad’s Day on Saturday, June 16 with American classics: Classic Cars, Craft Beers and Corn Dogs. The inaugural “Dad’s Day at Denio’s” event will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

“Denio’s has always been family oriented,” said Ken Denio, owner of Denio’s Farmers Market and Swap Meet. “It was started in 1947 by my father and we hope that this will become a new tradition for fathers and their kids in years to come.”

“Dad’s Day” will take place on the Denio’s Roseville Farmers Market and Swap Meet grounds in the area known to many as the “flats.” More than 50 classic cars, including the Denio’s own 1947 fire truck will be on display. In addition, specialty craft beers will also be available for tastings and purchase to those over 21 for a small fee.

How to safely and best view Sunday's solar eclipse

SACRAMENTO, CA - To fully see Sunday's solar eclipse may require a road trip from Sacramento to Reno or Lake Tahoe.

Sacramento astronomy lovers will get a partial eclipse in the valley while folks farther north will see the full "ring of fire."

In a rare occurrence, the sun will appear as a thin ring behind the moon.

The eclipse will be visible from several western states including Northern California.

Many astronomers will use a special solar telescope. Dr. Chris Taylor uses the instrument to teach his class at Sacramento State University. Taylor and his family will join millions around the world looking skyward for a glimpse of the solar eclipse.

"The moon is gonna pass between the earth and sun and block out part of the sun. Here in the Sacramento area we're going to get a partial eclipse," said Taylor.
