A bay-side celebration

For five years, Open Streets Santa Cruz has filled beautiful West Cliff Drive with music, games, a place to stroll, and a wide-open bike-way. The road will once again be closed to cars between Lighthouse Field and Natural Bridges--and open to bikes, wheelchairs, dogs (on leashes), dog walkers, and neighbors!
