Del Mar Days Picnic tickets now on sale!

By Claire McGreal

Please join the Del Mar Foundation on Sunday, September 12 to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Del Mar Day! This is a day when Del Martians come together, at the end of another summer, to share fun and games, a good meal, and our appreciation of beach living. So please join us for this late-summer festivity, at Powerhouse Park on Sunday, Sept. 12 from noon to 3:00 p.m. The Children's Program Committee is organizing lots of games, crafts and races for the children, including a sandcastle building contest, mega bubbles, and many relays. There will be plenty of prizes and lots of fun and excitement for all. Surf Sessions will provide surf lessons, and there will be volleyball and bocce for adults.

Buckboard Brand Catering will serve an all-American menu of grilled chicken, hamburgers and hot dogs, potato salad, coleslaw and more. Once again Del Mar Community Connections will serve their famous home-baked Lemon Cakes. What makes these cakes so delicious is their special ingredient - a generous serving of Love!

The cost of the Picnic is $12 for Adults and $8 for children aged 2 -12, if payment is postmarked by Sept. 3. To sign up for the Picnic, please send your check, payable to the Del Mar Foundation, to P.O. Box 2913, Del Mar CA 92014.

Following the Picnic keep your picnic blankets handy, because at 4:00 p.m., the Del Mar Foundation will present its final Twilight Concert of the season. The concert will feature Tim Flannery and Friends who will perform their renditions of bluegrass music and songs. The concert is sure to have young and old clapping their hands and tapping their feet.
