Oceanside Harbor Days September 26 and 27

Oceanside CA— The entire family can enjoy a wide variety of events and attractions during the annual Oceanside Harbor Days, Saturday, September 26th, 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Sunday, September 27th, 2015, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. This special multi-attraction event is presented by Genentech and organized by the Oceanside Chamber of Commerce.

“For more than 50 years now, the Oceanside Harbor District has hosted this event”, stated David Nydegger, Oceanside’s Chamber of Commerce President. “The Oceanside Chamber of Commerce has made it our responsibility to keep this special event tradition continuing. Thanks to our presenting sponsor Genentech and many other wonderful, vital sponsors we have this two-day event in September filled with amazing things to see and do for our community and tourists.”

Harbor Days features over 200 arts and craft exhibits, a tasty food court, costumed pirates led by Captain Jack Sparrow, and a beer garden sponsored by the Prohibition Brewing Company. Contests are also a big part of the Oceanside Harbor Days that includes a fishing derby, beauty pageant, world-famous Tiki Swim, and the wonderfully unique, “Nail and Sail” competition that draws thousands of spectators.

Special military guests are a highlight for Harbor Days, too. This year the Navy’s LCAC from ACU-5 will land on the beach early Saturday morning and vehicles from Camp Pendleton’s Mechanized Museum will be on display on the Harbor Beach.

Harbor Days is free to the public with complimentary transportation provided by the Chamber via the British Bus Company, with their unique double-decker buses picking up Harbor Days attendees from various shuttles stops throughout the Harbor and also provides a pick-up/drop-off location at the downtown Oceanside Transit Center at Seagaze and Cleveland Streets.

The Oceanside Chamber of Commerce is accepting contestants, vendor and volunteer applications. For more information go to www.OceansideHarborDays.com
