On Folsom Road coming from the freeway to the outlets, there is a welcome-to-town sign. This sign has an added feature, installed in November or so - a too-thin-to-live socialite shopper in a red dress and Santa hat.

She's still there. It's April.

There was one of these on Greenback too but I haven't looked out for it and don't drive past it every day.

the chamber, I believe, manages that sign. I know it costs to have the sign guy come and redo the sign. Maybe they're waiting for the next event sign (like the rodeo, I think, would be next) to go up to replace what's there. I know they put the guitars up before Folsom Live.
Knowing the past helps deciphering the future.

"too-thin-to-live" :lmaosmiley:

Maybe they are just waiting for Christmas to come around again kind of like
I do with Daylight Savings Time and my car clock. I just mentally add an hour until October.

Maybe Dorthea's is in charge of removing the sign :)

Darth Lefty, it looks like they heard you and switched out the sign for the upcoming rodeo.

They are pretty good about updating the Greenback one.

A few weeks after I originally posted this, they painted out the Santa hats, leaving a lot of negative space above her to the left.

She's gone now on Greenback too.

I thought they left the rodeo signs up year round in an effort to get nonlocals to remember something about Folsom other than the Johnny Cash / prison thing.
