Can you believe that the fall season of 2012 is in mid-swing and we are marching forward to one of my favorite holidays which is Thanksgiving Day. Very soon old man winter will pay us a visit and the Christmas season will be in full swing. I thought I would take a moment to highlight a number of upcoming fun and exciting events that are scheduled in and around Placerville, El Dorado County, Placer County, Sacramento County and the other surrounding Northern California Counties in the month of November. Beginning November 1 and continuing through November 4, Disney on Ice will perform their 100 years of Magic at the Power Balance Pavilion in Sacramento.
