SACRAMENTO -- It's time to party like it's 1849. The annual "Gold Rush Days" event is back in Old Sacramento.

And things are looking a bit older than usual, with dirt on the streets and a genuine tent city -- a recreation of how things used to be. There's a saloon, blacksmith, and a cast of characters.
New to the event this year: old-time baseball with audience participation and a movie tomorrow. Making a return -- a way to strike it rich -- gold panning. Noticeably absent this year: Old West style shoot outs.
