Farallon Islands History @ Pacifica Library, June 29

Peter-white 2
Wednesday, June 29 at
7 p.m., Pacifica Library, Sharp Park. $5 donation for Student Research Grants. A murder. Shipwrecks. A plane crash. A war over murre eggs. Great white sharks and hundreds of species on land, sea, and air. Join American Cetacean Society (ACS) for a presentation by Peter White (above), author of The Farallon Islands: Sentinels of the Golden Gate, long considered the seminal book on the islands’ history. America’s love affair with the great white shark has brought the treacherous fog-covered Farallon Islands into the cultural forefront once again.



Oldies But Goodies Parade, July 4

Every year for the past decade, Rick Bauman and his neighbors on Rio Vista Drive in Linda Mar have hosted Pacifica's unofficial July Fourth parade of custom hot rods and beautiful old cars and motorcycles. They encourage anyone with a nice old vehicle to join in. Please arrive at 10:30 a.m. to line up and take off at 11 a.m. The parade travels up Rosita Road to Oddstad Boulevard, turns left onto Everglades, right on Terra Nova Boulevard to Fassler and East Rockaway, north on Highway 1 for a run through Vallemar, then off to Sharp Park Pier promenade/seawall, circling back to Linda Mar Boulevard and up to Goodfellas at Park Mall for pizza and beer. It's a fun way to start the holiday! If you miss the parade but want to check out the rides, visit Goodfellas around noon.
