Under the Boardwalk

My sister and I are headed to Santa Cruz this afternoon. They have one-hit wonder bands from the 70s and 80s play free shows on the beach every Friday night. My sister has to go because she is taking a sign language class and they have an ASL (American Sign Language) intreputer there signing the whole concert.

Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is one of my favorite places. We used to go there a lot when I was younger. My whole 7th grade even went on a field trip there. The boardwalk is one of the oldest remaining. It opened in 1907! They have great classic rides there.
Giant Dipper Roller Coaster
The Skyglider
The swinging Pirate Ship
Looff Carousel which just turned 100 years old in August!
When I go to the boardwalk I usually dress pretty casual but when it first opened up people would dress up. I thought I would do a Friday Fancies as if I was in the 1930s/1940s going to the Boardwalk.
