Free hats were the order of the day Thursday thanks to the folks at American Hat Makers on Aviation Way during the 10th annual Hat Day in the Sun. The event is held to heighten skin cancer awareness and as a hat giveaway. Hat Day in the Sun is an annual national public awareness campaign to educate adults and children about how the right headwear can protect against skin cancer, sun damage, and premature aging. For information about American Hat Makers, visit www.AmericanHatMakers.com or call 1-800-Nice-Hat. They are located at 125 Aviation Way and their wide range of men’s and women’s hats are made in Watsonville.
