This weekend Santa Cruz County is having two awesome events!

The Watsonville Strawberry Festival takes place 4th & 5th from 11am-8pm. Admission is free! One of my favorite highlights every year is the strawberry pizza. I know it sounds unusual, but it’s good. You will just have to take my word for it. What makes the Strawberry Festival awesome is how it brings the community together and highlights different vendors and organizations in the area, and let’s not forget there will be delicious strawberry based FOODS (and other non-strawberry based foods)! Be sure to look out for Maia Rodriguez and Omar Guzman who will be taking photos of the event. For more information be sure to check out the Strawberry Festival website.

Also happening this same weekend is the Church Sreet Fair from 11am-7pm. This event will host music, art, and food from different cultures in the Santa Cruz County. This all day the event will have different artists performing music and dance. Our very own, Marc de Giere, will be there taking photos of the event. The activities will be free for the general public. For more information be sure to check out the Church Street Fair website.

Both events look to be a great deal of fun!
