The city of Santa Clara has a vibrant culture, especially when the weather outside warms up in the long days of summer. With a great music scene, gourmet food and wine, and a vibrant downtown area, Santa Clara is an excellent place to find yourself this summer. Here is a look at some of the events and attractions you will not want to miss in the city:
· Fireworks: If you didn't get the chance to see fireworks on July 4th, or if you are just looking for more; definitely check out the "Great America Fireworks" at Hyatt Regency Santa Clara. The next calendar events are 7/21, 7/28, 8/4, 8/11,8/18, and 8/25. Before you go to the fireworks, definitely come by and see us at Birk's - we're right around the corner!
· Wine & Artisan Cheese Pairing featuring Guglielmo Winery: If you can make it out to Los Gatos on August 20, 2012; you'll be able to sample the great artisan cheeses and five wines from Santa Clara Valley producer Guglielmo Winery. There will be no tickets sold at the door at this private event and space is limited so get your tickets today!
· End of Summer Skate Jam!: Nothing says summer like an afternoon of roller skating, and that is exactly what you will find at Roosevelt Community Center this August. The event includes music from DJ B-Rich, and if you're not into skating you can chow down at the food trucks. Just make sure to bring your skates, because there will be no skate rentals available.
