MARINA DEL REY — A two-day celebration of Marina del Rey’s 51st year will kick off on June 4 at the harbor where attendees can enjoy several attractions ranging from boats on display to classic cars.
The event presented by the L.A.’s MarinaFest Committee will run June 4-5 at Burton Chace Park, 13650 Mindanao Way, Marina del Rey. The event is a showcase of the many recreational activities Marina del Rey has to offer, including but not limited to, boating, sailing, fishing, kayaking and rowing.
Events begin with a Del Rey Yacht Club sponsored boat parade in the main channel led by the tall ship Bill of Rights.
The weekend will include an in-water boat show, a Snipe Wooden Dinghy Regatta hosted by South Coast Corinthian Yacht Club, $1 historical tours by Hornblower Cruises & Events, vendors, exhibits, live music, tall ship tours on Bill of Rights, kids attractions, classic car show, food trucks, a wine and beer garden, U.S. Coast Guard helicopter rescue demonstration and much more.
Admission is free to many of the events. Tickets are required for the Wine & Beer Garden, boat displays and tours. Half of the proceeds from tickets to sail aboard Bill of Rights will benefit LifeSail, a local nonprofit that helps Los Angeles County youth develop leadership and academic success through sailing, boat building and STEM.
