PHOTOS: Old Sacramento comes alive with Pacific Rim Street Festival

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The plink of a ukulele and the beat of drums filled the air when the Pacific Rim Street Festival took over Old Sacramento Sunday.

Despite temperatures reaching into the 80s, thousands crowded the streets and plank wood boardwalks from end to end of Front Street to enjoy the celebration of Asian and Pacific Rim culture at the annual street festival.

The day included a long lineup of events including live music, taiko drum demonstrations, arts and crafts booths and activities just for children.

A bevvy of pageant beauties paraded through the streets during the festival, each one a winner in the 2011 Miss Vietnam Sacramento pageant.

The festival is an opportunity for people to experience some of the tastes of Asian and pacific Rim culture, including grilled Thai specialties and handmade lumpia.

Everyone young and old joined in the celebration – some even dressed up for the occasion.
