Kids Rule the World!

Kids Day Downtown 2019 was a big hit with hundreds of families enjoying beautiful weather and lots of fun activities.

The Downtown Association, in partnership with Growing Up in Santa Cruz presented an afternoon of kid centric fun on Pacific Avenue, Cooper Street and in stores around the Downtown. Performances and exhibitions from Lairds Academy, All About Theatre, Motion Pacific, Luma Yoga, Be Natural Music and more. Over two dozen booths were set up along the sidewalks featuring activities. Everything from crafts and music to “bicycle spin art” and nature exploration games.

Families came from all over and took advantage of the great in store specials Downtown.

All in all it was a great family day in Downtown Santa Cruz.
