10 things to do in Northern California this weekend (October 15-16)


From daytime adventures to nighttime outings, here’s what Northern California has planned for your weekend.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — If an Armenian food festival, a lantern tour of an old cemetery, or chili cooking sounds fun to you, it shows there’s something for everyone this weekend in Northern California.

The weekend weather is getting colder, giving us the fall breeze we needed. Temperatures will be in the 70s with a light breeze from the southwest. Gather some friends, maybe some family, or even go solo, but get out there, soak up that fall weather, and enjoy some of those weekend events!
