Please bring your family and join us as we celebrate the season at our adobe. Warm up with some traditional hot chocolate from our cozy cocina, make new friends over games and crafts, and relax with some festive music. Staff and volunteers will make themselves available to share the stories of the Pájaro Valley’s park as we look back on celebrations past and look forward to the year to come. This park is currently an active construction site as the adobe building is being repaired and is open only during scheduled events. Free event; limited parking (carpooling encouraged). Event made possible by Friends of Santa Cruz State Parks and California State Parks.
