    The annual celebration kicks off on the evening of Thursday, June 30th at the Opening Night Block Party. Sponsors are celebrated, while local vendors will line main street. A live band will perform on stage while local bars and restaurants open their doors to all looking to celebrate. Visitors can stroll down Main St to the Pier Vendor Festival, featuring 70+ vendors including craft + retail booths, food trucks, carnival rides, live music and more! The Pier Plaza Festival runs all weekend long (through July 4th), and all ages are welcome.

    Bright and early on Monday July 4th, hundreds will take on the Annual Surf City Run. This year, the Surf City Run (5K) and Kids Fun Run (1 mile) is heading back downtown to the neighborhood streets; a beautiful course participants have come to know and love over the years. All participants receive an official finisher medal, with awards given to first, second, and third place (male and female in each age division). Advance registration is currently open (closes June 26), with onsite / race-day registration also available.
