SCOTTS VALLEY ART & WINE FESTIVAL!!! Just celebrated it's 13th year and it was a fabulous weekend in Skypark! Nothing better than leisurely strolling through the park on a sunny summer day with your friends, kids or your dog, sipping wine or beer, shopping gorgeous art, dancing to fabulous bands, and eating scrumptious food. Great Festival!!
