Both of my grandparents are from Santa Cruz, my mom was born there. My grandma used to ride the Dipper back in the 50’s. The first time I came to Santa Cruz was when I was 8. I was to small to ride the Dipper. I graduated from high school in 2018. My mom asked me what I wanted for my present, I said to ride the Dipper. My cousin Virginia Rossi who is from Santa Cruz rode it with me. Now I want to live in California. I love it there.
