VACAVILLE — Tickets are now available for the fifth annual Country in the Hills event that’s scheduled Aug. 31 at the C.C. Yin Ranch in Vacaville.

The event, for those who are 21 or older, starts at 5 p.m. and includes a no-host bar, tri-tip dinner, auctions and dancing to music provided by California Cowboys.
