Silicon Valley, and particularly Santa Clara County, is full of fun actitivies during the summer, especially in Cupertino.
In Cupertino, four of the most fun and free events are playing in the Fountains in front of the Cupertino Library and Cupertino City Offices, free movie nights, free weekly concerts in local parks and the annual Free Fireworks on Fourth of July.
Also, the Cupertino Library, which is part of the Santa Clara County Library District, offers additional fun summer events, including this year's new teen "Battle of the Bands."
Fountain Play in front of the Cupertino Library and Cupertino City Offices. I've been so tempted to join in and splash around too, but I think this big kid might inadvertently scare off the little kids! Playing in (or even just toe-touching) the fountains is a great way to quickly cool off on hot days.
Free Movie Nights at Local Parks. This summer featured a variety of fun family films, including The Lego Movie, Captain Marvel and Dumbo at various local parks, including Linda Vista Park, Jollyman Park and Memorial Park.
Free Concerts at Local Parks. Who doesn't enjoy a free concert? Many different musical genres are featured, including blues, classical, pop and more. Cupertino spreads out the bands at different venues, from Jollyman Park and Linda Vista Park to the Cupertino City Courtyard (in front of the Cupertino Library and Cupertino City Offices (but with the fountains turned off).
Fourth of July Free Fireworks Show. While most of Santa Clara County does not even allow safe and sane fireworks (except for Gilroy), Cupertino puts on an excellent fireworks show on Fourth of July. The show is free and can be seen easily from Creekside Park as well as Hyde Middle School.
All four of these events makes Cupertino a great place to enjoy summer fun.
