The Fog Fest Discover Pacifica Parade, this year themed “Seaside Dreams,” is happy to announce that a second Honorary Grand Marshal has been added to the parade lineup. We are pleased and honored to have the recently crowned state champion Pacifica American Little League All-Stars join us!
As the news spread of their grand accomplishment, excitement built, so we scurried to develop a plan to have them featured and included in the parade. This year’s Grand Marshal, Mayor Mary Ann Nihart, leads the parade procession. Then midway, the Pacifica American Little League All-Stars follow. Wrapping up the parade’s procession are Pacifica Sports Hall of Fame members.
The parade is on Saturday, September 27 and begins at 10 a.m. at the south end of Palmetto Avenue, ending at IBL Middle School. Thomas Stafford kicks off the parade singing the National Anthem from the South Stage at Montecito Avenue.

Cash prizes are awarded for the following: Best Float, Most Creative Walking Group, Best Music or Dance Group, and we can’t forget the "Rustiest Car Contest" (must be driven on its own power).

According to Canadian developer Sonora Shores* (say what?), Pacifica's scruffy surfer overlook Roberts Road (between Fassler and Crespi) is to become home to something mysteriously branded as Harmony Estates. How's that grab ya?
*Note to the geographically challenged: Sonora is 145 miles east of Pacifica, up in the foothills and not on the shores of any body of water we know of.

Why waste precious water during this drought. Forget about ice bucket challenges. Here is a trash bucket challenge that can make a difference.
1. Pick up a bucket of trash in 24 hours (or take a little longer if needed), then make a donation to the Pacifica Beach Coalition (PBC) to help its beach cleanup and restoration work (click the link below). 2. Challenge your friends and family to do likewise. 3. By taking the trash bucket challenge, you can help save the beaches, the ocean, and marine wildlife. Only you can stop the flow of plastic litter into our creeks, where it goes down to pollute the ocean. Record your trash bucket challenge by clicking the blue bag at Pacifica Beach Coalition
Call for Artists Since 1997, Coastside Land Trust has actively worked to protect and enhance the natural, scenic, recreational, cultural, historical, and agricultural resources of Half Moon Bay and the San Mateo County coast. Our gallery was launched in 2011 to convey the beauty of these resources through art. We now hold four to six thematic, juried shows per year and all artists are invited to submit.
We invite you, and the artists you know, to submit to our upcoming show "California Raptors." Raptors are icons of the California landscape and continue to inspire and delight us. The word "raptor" includes hawks, falcons, kites, eagles, vultures, and owls. Coastside Land Trust Gallery hopes to capture this diverse group of birds and their habitat in the upcoming show. All media are invited to be considered. The submission period is September 22 - September 29 and the show will run from November 7 - February 13.
