5K Ocean Run, Ocean Festival, San Clemente

All of our South Orange County cities try to make summer a special time for  their residents. There are  free concerts in the park on Friday nights in Laguna Niguel, and on Sundays in Dana Point. San Clemente has a few beach concerts in the summer, and they also have their Annual Ocean Festival on July 18th & 19th.

This event is held at the San Clemente Pier and Beach and the events include Lifeguard Games, The Great rubber Duck race, Art shows, Sand Sculpting contests and more. Stay for all of the events each day, or pick and choose the events you would be most interested in.

Here are a few excerpts from the Ocean Festival Site:

“The Lifeguard Events (Sat)

Event description:
California lifesavers and ocean athletes compete for overall points and prize money in the San Clemente Ocean Festival Lifeguard Competition.

Racers will compete in the following events: Surf Race (short ocean swim), 10’6” Paddleboard Sprint, Rescue Relay (2 person, rescue can and fins), Surf Ski Race, International & American Ironman races, Paddleboard Relay (2 person, 10’6”) and the ever-popular thrills and spills of the National Doryman’s Association races. .

The event will take place on the North side of the San Clemente Pier Saturday July 18 scheduled to start at 9:00a.m.”

The Sand Sculpting Contest is one of our favorites, the creativity of the teams who come out to sculpt the sand into fantastic creatures, castles and more is inspiring.

This two day event culminates in a sweet Rubber Ducky Race “As a highly anticipated finale for this incredible two-day event, the Great Rubber Duck Race has some exciting prizes waiting to go home with some lucky winners. Throughout the festival you can purchase and decorate ducks for just $5/each and then cheer them on as they “catch a wave” to the finish line on Sunday, for the final event of “The Greatest Show on Surf!”

For more information on all of the events, and how to sign up to participate head over to the http://www.oceanfestival.org/ website.

Happy summer!!
