If you’re planning on eating a lot of hot dogs this Fourth of July (and we know you are) maybe you want to kick off the day with some exercise. The Firecracker 5K is BACK after skipping last year due to COVID; meet on July 4 at Harvey West Park in Santa Cruz and start anywhere from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.
Head up to Scotts Valley on the Fourth of July for a parade and flyover performance by Little Tampico! Festivities start at noon, the parade kicks off at 3 p.m. along Scotts Valley Drive, and the flyover follows the parade kick-off.
It isn’t the Fourth of July without Aptos’ famous World’s Shortest Parade! Get a good seat along the route from Soquel and State Park Dr all the way to Trout Gulch Rd and celebrate with locals as homemade floats make their rounds.

Last week our team met up at Cantine Winepub in Aptos for a team get-together (peep the aftermath to get an idea of how much fun we had!).

“Jessica worked with us for 6-8 months through the most trying time for purchasing a house in this insane market. She was incredibly available and responsive. She had to make multiple offers for us and helped us through the disappointment of losing multiple bids. It was extra challenging for her as she had to please 4 people involved in the selection process but she managed this with ultimate tact. We are very thankful for her help.”
