It’s a national holiday for some that doesn’t show up on any calendar.
A day to rekindle friendships, of barbecues and extended family reunions. It’s a day some Californians pick El Centro over El Capitan, when Blythe and Brawley best Beverly Hills, a day it’s better to have hotel reservations closer to Calipatria than Carmel.
It’s the single busiest day on the hunting calendar when more Californians are out hunting than any other. It’s the Sept. 1 statewide dove season opener.
