Looking for free things to do for summer fun in Silicon Valley?
When looking for some FREE fun on the weekends this summer, just call some friends, pack a beach blanket, jacket and chairs and prepare to enjoy the "FREE Friday Night Bands on the Beach" concerts at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk.
Each Friday night during the summer season from June 15 through August 31, 2018, the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk sponsors two FREE shows every Friday night, the first show at 6:30 pm followed by a second show at 8:30 pm.
Visitors can hear the music playing throughout the Boardwalk, whether riding the Big Dipper roller coaster, eating a corn dog on the boardwalk, dining on the pier or just chilling with toes in the sand on the beach.
Enjoy a ride on the classic Looff Carousel. For thrills, ride the world-famous Giant Dipper, the largest wooden roller coaster in the West. Be sure to sample some of Marini's salt water taffy, now celebrating 100 years at the Beach.
Parking nearby is available although the closest is a bit pricey at about $20 (way up from $12 in 2014). Sometines nearby parking lots include the full page of coupons good at the Boardwalk for games, activities and food.
