The Old Sacramento Foundation observes 2012 Obscura Day (the International Celebration of Unusual Places) with an "adults-only" version of its popular Underground Tours. Led by period guide Miss Odessa, this 90-minute evening tour "explores some of the dark secrets and racy tales lurking in Sacramento's underground history."
Underground tours in Old Sacramento honor the amazing 19th century street-raising effort that protected the city from floods and produced the excavated foundations and enclosed pathways we have today. Guests should be ready to walk in spaces with uneven surfaces and low ceilings.

Where: Sacramento History Museum, 101 I Street in Old Sacramento
When: April 28, 2012, 5:30 - 7 p.m.
