CHULA VISTA – A new street fair will take over the city of Chula Vista this month complete with tall ship tours, art projects and boat building.
The Raggle-Taggle Faire on the Waterfront, a free event hosted by the South Bayfront Artists organization, welcomes the community to participate in the day-long event scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 15.
“The ‘Raggle-Taggle’ fair is a pilot event,” said Susan Johnson of the South Bayfront Sailing Association. “We’re hoping to turn the concept into frequent Saturday art-music-maritime events at the Chula Vista Harbor.”
Free tours of the historic schooner Bill of Rights, live music and food trucks will be offered at the event. A Wharf Marketplace will be held from noon to dusk where local growers will sell fruit, vegetables and fresh fish.
Children will also have an opportunity to learn how to sail a boat or build their own skiff. Interactive art stations will include face painting, jewelry making and painting.
Adults can learn more about sewing canvas covers or splicing a line.
Local artists will also be exhibiting their art foe viewing and for purchase. The Raggletaggle Band will provide live music for the waterfront fair.
The first annual Raggle-Taggle Fair is sponsored by the South Bayfront Sailing Association with support from California Yacht Marina in Chula Vista, Chula Vista Marina and RV Park and the Port of San Diego.
The fair will run from 9:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 15 at Chula Vista Harbor; 600 Marina Parkway.
