SOLANA BEACH — The Boardwalk’s back. Demolition days are over in Solana Beach and you are invited to the Summer Kickoff party from 11 to 4 p.m. July 13 between 271 and 221 N. Coast Highway 101.The yearlong construction project along Highway 101 in Solana Beach has been completed, and just in time for summer. So what better way to celebrate than with performances from local musicians, Steve Denyes and Aloha Radio, prize giveaways, a bounce house and arcade games?
More than 13 months of digging, dust and hard hats created some headaches, but the stretch is now ready to enjoy for an afternoon of shopping and dining.
Bryan Fuller, owner of Java Depot, stated, “We want people to know that we have created a unique community gathering area on the 101. Now that the construction is completed, it has left us with increased parking and a more ‘walkable’ downtown.”
In celebration of the completion of the project, Fuller, along with almost a dozen other tenants along the boardwalk, are hosting the event, There will be musical performances by local surf rock band, Aloha Radio, as well as children’s performer Steve Denyes from the Hullabaloo Band. Steve recently played at Fiesta Del Sol. He will start off the event, playing from 11:30 to 12:15 p.m., followed by a set from Aloha Radio from 1 to 4 p.m.
There will be a variety of free giveaways throughout the day, including a free haircut and color from Shear Madness Salon, Bloody Mary’s from T’s Cafe, a Vitality massage, facial, or sauna treatment, a complimentary Cardiff Acupuncture session, gift certificates to Java Depot, free smoothies from Juicers, and many Melissa & Doug products from Coastal Postal & Toys.
“We want to welcome the community back through our doors and remind them why this is such a unique area of town” one Boardwalk employee said.
