Summer is over, and the kids are back in school. This is supposed to be the time of year when the events wind down.

What else is in store for this weekend?

Let’s see…there will be superheros, food trucks, a Santa Cruz themed pop-up market, grazing on the green, psychic migrations, a comedy competition, a pet festival, and a whole lot more.
