CHICO, Calif. — It's going to be a busy end to the week in the North State as Presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders hosts three campaign events.
Sen. Sanders began a town hall in Chico at the Chico Masonic Family Center at noon on Thursday. Doors opened to the public at 10:30 a.m. The event was free with tickets not required, but the campaign encouraged an RSVP. Entrance was on a first-come, first-served basis.

Motorists were told to expect increased traffic and potential delays in the areas surrounding the locations before and after each event. Chico Police advised traffic could be impacted between 9 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. and drivers were encouraged to use alternative routes.
The next day, Sanders will address the Democratic National Committee at its summer meeting in San Francisco before holding a town hall on college affordability and student debt.
Sen. Sanders started his trip to the North State Thursday by visiting Paradise where he toured the damage from the Camp Fire.
