BULLS, BREWS AND 'MUSHING' IN FOLSOM
What: As a walk-up to the rodeo, the annual Folsom Cattle Drive is adding a new component to the fun this year with an event called the Bulls and Brews Urban Iditarod (formerly a fun run). So what is it? It's a race, a costume contest, a charity food drive and, well, wackiness! Teams (with theme-decorated shopping carts) will "mush" up and down Sutter Street gathering food for the Twin Lakes Food Bank. Teams will be honored for the best look and the most food collected. The event is sponsored by the Folsom Young Professionals of the Chamber of Commerce.
When: 2 p.m. registration (for teams), 6 p.m. competition Thursday followed by the annual cattle drive
Where: Find a spot anywhere on Sutter Street and bring a food donation

Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand.
Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.
Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.
Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.
