Mardi Gras 2014 may be a few weeks away, but Carnival season has already begun in New Orleans, with brightly colored parades throughout the city and much more to come.
The disabled Carnival cruise ship “Triumph” was being slowly towed back to port Thursday as passengers were forced to stay outside to avoid the stench.
The cruise ship stranded in the Gulf of Mexico is being towed to dry land after an engine fire Sunday cut the ship’s power about 150 miles from shore, stranding the vessel.
In agrarian areas such as ours, fall means harvest time. Hop in the car and taste some of our natural
resources at the Return of the Salmon Festival in Anderson and the Mountain Mandarin Festival in Auburn.
The Lodi Grape Festival and Harvest Fair is a family-friendly option for the fair and festival season. And
– get this – despite the “Lodi” name this festival is NOT about the vino.
