Join the Kiwanis for the Annual OB Kite Festival at Robb Field (new location for 2018). Prizes for best decorated kites, by age category. Spectacular kite flying demonstrations throughout the day. Carnival rides and a craft fair are also part of the event. This free family event is the oldest children’s kite festival in the United States, now celebrating its 7th decade. This is a third-generation event; people who attended as children are now bringing their children and grandchildren. Youngsters are taught how to make kites; all materials are supplied. There are prizes for the best decorated kites. Any handmade kite can be submitted, not just kites made at the Festival. Entertainment and lunch are provided. Adding to the fun, families can go on carnival rides or browse for unique handicrafts at the craft fair.
The events they sponsor throughout the year are all fundraisers for the OB Tree Committee. The OB Tree Committee sponsors the OB Food and Toy Drive that sponsors over 100 local families and seniors in need each year during the holiday season. The group assembles care packages and new gifts and toys for those in need of help during the holidays.
OBTC & OBMA welcome you to join the foodie event of the year for Ocean Beach – the annual Restaurant Walk on the second Tuesday of November! We typically have over 40 restaurants and local businesses participating. This is a great way to discover places in OB you may have never seen and to visit the places you already know and love. Proceeds support the OB Food and Toy Drive, which provides assistance to over 80 local families and seniors in need during the holidays. Learn more about the OB Food and Toy Drive.
