Please join us in recognition of the 100th year anniversary of the tragedy in which 13 people drowned on May 5, 1918 at Ocean Beach due to a massive rip current. 60 people were rescued that day, and it was a major event in the founding of lifeguarding as we know it today.  After 10 years of research and writing, the San Diego City Lifeguard History Book Vol 1 (1868-1941) will be released at the event as well, followed by a reception hosted by Wonderland Ocean Pub at 5083 Santa Monica Avenue.

Suggestion: Arrive early, carpool, Uber, bike or take public transit as parking will be limited. (Ocean Beach Farmer’s Market Day)
