Downtown Events To Keep Sonora Police Busy

The Sonora Police Dept will be busy over the next few weeks with a couple of large special events scheduled to take place in downtown Sonora.

Sonora Police Officer and Special Events Coordinator, Jaemie Boeding, was KVML’s Thursday “Newsmaker of the Day”.

This Saturday April 25th, the City of Sonora will host the 14th annual “Sonora Spring Festival” from 11.m. to 4 p.m. Live music, arts, crafts and plenty of vendors will be scattered throughout the downtown district, along Washington Street.

Two weeks after that, on Saturday May 9th, the Motherlode Round-Up Parade will take place on Washington Street. This is the largest parade in Tuolumne County and the amount of spectators is tradionally large.

“We encourage families to come down and have fun,” Boeding said. “However, what we don’t want to see is open alcohol containers on the public sidewalks or drunken behavior.”

Boeding said that plenty of businesses along Washington will be serving alcohol legally inside of their own establishments, but patrons are not allowed to carry those drinks outside.

Traffic citations for parking illegally around town will also be enforced, so arrive early.

Boeding said that even though she will be busy working on Mothers Day weekend, with the Round-Up Parade and Rodeo, she still has fun. It’s a great chance for her to see several friends and familiar faces.

The “Newsmaker of the Day” is heard each weekday morning on AM 1450 KVML at 6:47, 7:47 and 8:47am.
