How about a nice vacation to the south of France? Not in your budget? Fortunately, there’s an alternative close by that will spare your pocketbook.

The Cache Creek Lavender Festival takes place this weekend in the blooming lavender fields of the Capay Valley. Featured are live music, wine tasting, crafts demonstrations, field tours (complete with pick-your-own lavender), carriage rides and refreshments, including lavender lemonade and lavender ice cream.

The festival runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Admission is free.

Visitors are invited to roam the lavender fields and pick their own lavender flowers.

“The fragrance, color, butterflies, bees and warm sun combine to create a thoroughly enjoyable experience that will stay in your memory as the ultimate aromatherapy treatment,” a news release said.

The Cache Creek Lavender Farm is at 3430 Madrone St. in Rumsey. For more information and directions, visit www.cachecreeklavender.com.
