A Southern California tradition is Surf City Nights in nearby HB. This popular event happens when they close three blocks on Main Street to traffic and open it up for everyone to freely wander and enjoy the lively happenings. This family-friendly event is very well-attended and includes a mini farmers market, local artists with their original art and crafts for sale, over 90 vender booths, and so much more. Merchants have sidewalk sales and there are lots of restaurants to enjoy a bite to eat. Kids will like it too. They are often bounce houses and street performers and bands. Surf City Nights takes place every Tuesday night from 5-9pm. Can’t beat that iconic pier and Pacific Ocean backdrop!
