San Clemente Promotes Ocean Safety through Festival

About 4 month(s) ago by Ayres Hotels

Swimming and enjoying Southern California’s magnificent beaches and landscapes are certainly a must for both visitors and local residents alike. Like any fun adventure, enjoying the ocean and its accompanying coasts means creating risk on yourself and the surrounding environment. The San Clemente Ocean Festival promotes the importance of ocean safety, the environment, and the community through a weekend celebration with athletic venues and family activities. The event will take place from Saturday, July 16th to Sunday, July 17th.
