This past weekend I was accepted to report on one of the most highly anticipated festivals of the year, Suwannee Hulaween 2014.

*Event Review* Santa Cruz Music Festival Pre-Party | Santa Cruz | Oct. 10 – 11

The Santa Cruz Music Festival Pre-Party was the biggest electronic music party that the area had seen in a while; Raindance, Northern Nights Music Festival, Euphoric.Net, Santa Cruz Waves, and Good Times Santa Cruz were partners in the event and the amazing collaboration definitely showed.

*Event Review* Foreverland | Sept. 19 – 21 | 2014

Prehistoric-looking dragonflies zipped through the air all day, and fireflies danced with the lights and lasers at night. Foreverland may have...
