City Lifeguard Pancake Breakfast

Saturday & Sunday, 7:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.

Join us behind Marine Safety Headquarters (clock tower) for a hot and hearty pancake breakfast before you compete in one of the athletic events or start your day of fun in the sun.


So come on down with friends, family and fellow athletes for a hearty serving of pancakes and sausages served with orange juice or coffee. It’s a great way to start the day!


29th Annual Button's Woodies on the Pier

Saturday & Sunday, 9:00 a.m. – 2:45 p.m

Where there is sand and surfing, you are likely to see Woody cars. In the 1960’s surfers found the roomy old Woody station wagons a convenient way to take their longboards to the ocean in search of the “perfect wave."

Watch for these incredible vehicles parading down from Ave. Del Mar and onto the pier both mornings. There will be a different set of 15 each day in a wide variety of colors and styles to see!


Ocean Art Show

Saturday & Sunday, 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

For those of you who would like to view the event from a different angle we have the Ocean Art Show in Parque Del Mar (the grassy area below the parking lots, north of the tunnel entrance to the beach).


You’ll find all sorts of ocean and beach related art – landscapes and beachscapes; original oils, watercolors and giclees; photography, ceramics, quilts, jewelry, pillows and hand-crafted soaps, plus all different kinds of artisan crafted pieces that make great gifts or additions to your own home!
