DEL MAR — Offering front-row sunset views, ocean breezes and live music, the Del Mar Village Association ushers in the summer season with the Del Mar Summer Solstice from 5 to 8 p.m. June 19 at Del Mar’s Powerhouse Park, 1658 Coast Boulevard, Del Mar. Tickets cost $75 per person; and are on sale now at summer.delmarmainstreet.com.
New this year will be a Del Mar sunset Tiki Torch paddle out and surf show on the waves by the Del Mar lifeguard crew. Summer Solstice provides guests with a chance to socialize, eat, drink and listen to live music against a Pacific backdrop. This year’s attendees will experience selections from more than 20 local Del Mar restaurants, enjoy tastings from some of California wineries and breweries and participate in a silent auction. Live music will be performed by the North County band Semisi & FulaBula, with South Pacific rhythm and influences.
The event’s silent auction will benefit the Challenged Athletes Foundation’s Operation Rebound Del Mar Surf Clinic, providing opportunities to the physically disabled, including bringing beach-friendly wheelchairs to the community of Del Mar. Other proceeds from the event will go to benefit the Del Mar Village Association.
