Ceres is great place to raise your family and have a quiet life. Many people come here to get away from city life but still work in the city. Growing up in Ceres was easy and is a quiet. As a teenager though, there aren't many things to do. However the town is still developing and may more businesses are slowly popping up. There are a few events that people look forward to such as the annual street fair, summertime park concerts, and other events put on by the town or highschool. Overall it is a nice to place to live and grow.
