Celebrate innovation, live music, cultural freedoms and progress! The energy of the the Roaring 1920s was of pulsing instrumentals and unabashed sensual demonstrations. Hangtown Halloween Ball is an annual manifestation of that same energy and creativity. We celebrate life and community around musical events and will bring the atmosphere of the 1920s to Placerville this fall.
