Hangtown Days Featuring the Wagon Train and Street Dance
Hangtown Days, Saturday June 8, 1pm to 7pm
The Hangtown Days event is sponsored by the Placerville Downtown Association and SMUD and it will welcome the Highway 50 Association’s 70th Anniversary Wagon Train as it rolls through Placerville on June 8, 2019. It is also the celebration of El Dorado County’s rich historic heritage.
We are encouraging people of all ages to dress up and join the foot parade which will kick off the celebration. Participants can decorate a small wagon to pull, ride a stick horse, or just walk along. Participants for the walking parade must submit an application which can be downloaded at www.hangtowndays.com.
