This Weekend in Santa Cruz: May 19th – 21st, 2017

Late spring weather is here, which means beautiful sunny days after the fog has burned off. There are many choices to make this a fun-packed weekend.

Take an educational hike at Arana Gulch or listen to a concert in the park a-cappela style. You can also Celebrate Oaxaca, Mexico at Harbor High or shop for antique treasures at the fairgrounds.

If you want to stay indoors, take a stroll through an artwalk at the mall, or enjoy a concert by a popular legendary rock tribute band.  You can also get a rare look at how surfboards are designed at a workshop open house.

It’s hard to believe it’s already the last weekend of April and we are well into spring. There’s reason to celebrate, because not only did April showers bring May flowers, but tax season is over, too.

The days are getting longer and nights are getting warmer, finally. It’s time to get out and enjoy all that Santa Cruz has to offer. There are many choices, including a day for independent bookstores, local performances and even The Santa Cruz Mini Maker Faire (see below for a chance to win free tickets). Some annual events are back this year, too, such as the open house at Moss Landing Marine Lab, and the UCSC Annual Plant Sale.

There are a lot of things to do out there this weekend, so check them out and have some fun. The weather’s expected to be warm and sunny, too. Enjoy!
