The weather forecast calls for continued sunny and mild conditions, which makes it the perfect opportunity to get out and enjoy a late fall weekend!

Families can enjoy a puppet show at the library, have breakfast with Santa, and experience the ultimate holiday tradition, The Nutcracker (with performances at three different venues in the county).

For the foodies out there we have a vegan chocolate tour and tasting event, and authentic Indian cuisine for a great cause, Adopt-A-Family.

That holiday feeling is in the air again, which means there’s a lot to do this weekend.

You might want to take out-of-town guests to a performance or enjoy a day on the ranch. Maybe you really want to get some holiday shopping done from the many fairs and shopping events or take the kids to meet their favorite children’s author at her book signing event.

With so many great choices of fun things to do, it might be hard to choose. But don’t worry; we’ve put together a great list to help you decide.  Don’t forget to check out our holiday guides, too!

This Weekend in Santa Cruz: December 1st – 3rd, 2017

Hello, December…wow, that was quick!

Some of our favorite local holiday traditions take place this weekend and it looks like we may get to leave our umbrellas at home. Saturday’s a biggie—we’ll be in our usual spot for the Downtown Holiday Parade and bundle up later for the Lighted Boat Parade, plus we’ll squeeze in some holiday shopping in between.

On the non-holiday front, you can take in a tribute to Johnny Cash, cheer on our Warriors, and support a fundraiser for Napa and Santa Rosa fire victims.
