Glowing streams of red and green lasers skewer clouds of smoke, scattering as players charge through with Laserforce Gen6 equipment. The 6,000-square-foot arena swells with high-energy music, which sets a steady pace for up to seven teams as they swarm two levels, seeking enemies to blast against the black-lit backdrops. Digital babble drifts from more than 25 games in the arcade, from the sounds of explosive combat in shooting games to the screams of traffic cones in racing simulators such as Super Bikes 2 and Dirty Driving. All-night laser-tag sessions immerse combatants during monthly lock-ins, which let them form teams to practice different defensive strategies, such as guarding the best shooter with a human pyramid.

The growl of lions and tigers will be replaced by the growls of guitars as the Sactopalooza Spring Party lights up the Sacramento Zoo with music from tribute bands and DJ Rigatony. No Duh blasts a high-energy pop set based on the music of No Doubt with a number of visuals, costumes, and props from the band’s music videos. Nominated for Best Tribute Band at the 2010 San Diego Music Awards, the Red Not Chili Peppers fill the air with classic funk-rock melodies and the four-chord password that grants entry to the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame. In addition to the concerts, attendees can partake in hands-on activities such as mechanical bull riding and gladiator jousting with foam poles.
The Sactopalooza Spring Party is the largest annual fundraising event for the Active 20-30 Club of Sacramento. This group of 20- to 30-year-old volunteers works year-round to improve the lives of local children with special needs. In addition to raising funds for children, the group organizes hands-on events to interact with children at an annual picnic, winter clothing drives, and a holiday party at the UC Davis cancer center. Proceeds from the party helps support these events and the organization’s work with children throughout the region.
Colorful lights glide across the glossy floor at The Rink alongside the spinning wheels of roller skates and roller blades. To set the pace, the DJ at The Rink spins upbeat hits, often selecting tunes from a specific era, such as dance pop from the 1980's or Russian turbo-folk from the 1880's. When not skating, guests can refuel with nachos, pizza, and popcorn at the snack bar, or embark on virtual adventures in the video arcade. Several of the games reward winners with tickets, which can be traded in at the prize counter for toys, bracelets, and novelties.
There are two keys to a glamorous party: a DJ with an impressive collection of hit tracks and at least one guest who pulls up in a limo. With a team of veteran DJs--whose 30,000-song catalog spans more than eight decades--and a fleet of limos, the Mix Master has been turning regular parties into glamorous soirees for more than 20 years. The company's DJs specialize in wedding receptions, and each excel in warming up a crowd and creating memories through their own individual style and personality. The fleet of sleek rides range from classic Lincoln Towncars to stretch Hummers, with interiors as chic as their gleaming exteriors. Riders watch flat screen TVs, pour champagne into crystal glassware by the glow of neon lights, and open the sunroof to grab a breath of fresh air or high-five a passing stilt walker.
Rita Temple, the professional shutterbug behind Temple Photography, strikes a balance between spontaneous, candid shots and artfully arranged composition when photographing her subjects. She makes natural light her plaything during outdoor shoots in which she directs newly engaged couples to kiss against the setting sun or captures kids at play. Temple Photography also dispatches photo booths and attendants to parties where up to eight guests can cram inside the booth and don props before snapping shots that materialize on take-home print strips.
