Important Safety Information

Our priority is to bring our community back together while continuing to keep everyone safe. We are closely following all CDC and Sacramento County Health Department safety guidelines. Event personnel will be wearing protective equipment, and physical distancing practices will be enforced to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Since there will be multiple opportunities to receive fun prizes and interact through your vehicle’s windows, we require that all participants and volunteers wear a mask at all times. Participants must stay in their cars except for an emergency.

What to Expect at the Moving Day Drive-Thru Celebration

Participants are invited to decorate their cars and drive through a festive route filled with fun, interactive, family-friendly activities. The event will put our community’s energy on full display as we return to celebrating together. This 30-minute experience will include Parkinson’s education, meeting our sponsors, rewards pickup, and more. You don’t want to miss it!

Registration

We ask that everyone who attends Moving Day please register at MovingDaySacramento.org and select a drive-thru time on the Eventbrite page before the event.

How to Participate

Throw on your Moving Day gear, decorate your car and drive over to Gibson Ranch Park to join the fun. Moving Day will take place rain or shine. Check the weather forecast to prepare accordingly. Should conditions warrant any change, we will announce it via email and on the Moving Day website.
