Farrell's returns to Sacramento Thursday

It's been 40 long years since the airplane accident at Farrell's Ice Cream Parlour off Freeport Boulevard that left 22 dead. But Farrell's is returning to Sacramento. The new location's grand opening is Thursday at 11 a.m. near the busy intersection of Watt Avenue and Arden Way. This week, Farrell's fans have previewed the space - 8,700 square feet and able to seat 300 guests - at events benefiting the Firefighters Burn Institute, Shriners Hospitals for Children and UC Davis Health System. Diners are slowly adding reviews and photos to
