Pigs, ponies, pumpkins make for Fall fun in West Sac

WEST SACRAMENTO, CA - Workers at Dave's Pumpkin Patch in West Sacramento are gearing up for another fun-filled Fall season including a two-mile corn maze, hay rides, pig races, face-painting, pony rides, and a pumpkin launcher that chucks the festive fruit up to 500 yards.

This year's grand opening is set for October 8 and will feature an all new weekend fright fest.  The corn maze, which can take more than one hour to walk through, turns haunted on weekends, meaning visitors can expect to find spirits, specters and other spooky surprises lurking around every one of the maze's 85 corners.

Prices for the corn maze are $6 for adults (18 and up), $5 for children (12-17), $4 for kids (3-11), and it's free for kids 2 years and under.

Dave's Pumpkin Patch is located at 3010 West Burrows in West Sacramento.

Contractor hoists W. Sacramento 9/11 flag tribute

WEST SACRAMENTO, CA -- On Sept. 11, 2001, John Vinson, a general contractor in Sacramento, felt compelled to do something to inspire people during one of the nation's darkest days. He grabbed a large American flag, stood atop a freeway overpass and waved it to passing drivers for hours.

Since then, Vinson has put together an annual 9/11 flag tribute to commemorate the tragedy. For the past four years, it has been located in a large field in West Sacramento at the northeast corner of South River Road and Jefferson Boulevard.

Visitors this year will see a memorial consisting of more than 3,000 American flags, a wood replica of the twin towers, and a mannequin modeled after a picture of an exhausted firefighter sitting on a bench at ground zero during that tragic day in 2001.
