In addition to the music and art, the event will also showcase skateboarding competitions, a true Southern California tradition! There will also be numerous food trucks (another Southern California tradition!) and event participants will vote on their favorite meal.

Students living in Vantaggio can easily walk to the event; students living with host families can take the trolley, or should check out Car2Go’s “Drop Off Zone”, which will work from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. on 9th Ave between Market and G St. Visit www.sandiego.car2go.com today to become a member!
