More than 1,000 people took a trip to Margaritaville Saturday night as Garratt Wilkin and the Parrotheads celebrated the music and laid-back spirit of Jimmy Buffett at Lake Clementia Amphitheater. The latest concert in the Entertainment, Theatre and Culture summer series packed the dance floor as Wilkin and a half dozen Parrothead musicians performed hits that included "Cheeseburger in Paradise," "Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes" and "Come Monday." The SkippinBrook acoustic duo performed pop favorites to begin the evening's entertainment, and the Country Club set up an open-air pop-up restaurant before the show to serve (what else?) margaritas and cheeseburgers. See the ETC schedule of concerts here.

An audience of about 900 enjoyed a moonlit evening of dancing and occasionally singing along to Journey hits like “Any Way You Want It," "Don't Stop Believin'," and "Lights” as the Entertainment, Theatre & Culture for Rancho Murieta concert season began Saturday night at Lake Clementia Amphitheater with  Evolution, the Ultimate Tribute to Journey.  Early in the show, the group performed a guitar version of the national anthem, a la Jimi Hendrix, that featured an American flag and dramatic smoke display.

Finding Trash 'n' Treasure at a new location

Trash 'n' Treasure

Red square See 13 more photos from Trash 'n' Treasure

Trash ‘n’ Treasure, the annual garage-sale fundraiser, moved down the road this year to the campus of Cosumnes River Elementary School, and Saturday morning’s turnout looked like quite a success.  Eleven-year-old Parker Faeth, above, was one of the customers, buying cherry tomato and bell pepper plants from Sue Sheridan of the River Valley Garden Club.  Instead of the leafy, meandering experience of past years at Murieta Plaza, the new venue allows straight-ahead rows of shopping.  Trash ‘n’ Treasure benefits the CRES PTA. There was a string of booths dedicated to raising funds for Murietan Doreen Ntale, who is battling cancer. Even with all the on-site parking, cars lined Jackson Road in mid-morning.  Also Saturday morning, Murieta Village held its own garage-sale event, right.

Saturday's Rancho Murieta Airshow marked Armed Forces Day and it marked the return of air shows to Rancho Murieta, once known for them. The day drew hundreds of spectators, who enjoyed dozens of aircraft, from giant military craft to helicopters and small personal planes painted gorgeous colors.  Overhead, there were formation flights and spectacular aerobatics.
