The City of Garden Grove participates in the inaugural Meet on Beach event, a multi-city community festival connecting seven Orange County cities along Beach Boulevard, on Sunday, November 17, 2019, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., at Wakeham Elementary, located at 7772 Chapman Avenue.
The Garden Grove location will feature over-sized lawn games, a rock wall, and inflatable obstacle courses; an opportunity for a bike tune-up at Papa Wheelie’s fix-it station; and feature food trucks, including Drizzle Inc. and Fiesta Gourmet.
Attendees are encouraged to roll their way around the “Safe Moves City” interactive exhibit, courtesy of the Garden Grove Police Department. Enter to win a Lucky Prospect Pro Scooter (valued at $250) or a family stay at the Great Wolf Lodge Southern California. Musical entertainment will be provided by DJ Gummo.
Public parking is available at the US Bank parking lot, located at the southeast corner of Chapman and Beach Boulevard, from 9:00 a.m. and closing promptly at 3:00 p.m.
The free event encourages attendees to reimagine Beach Boulevard for lasting and future economic development opportunities, while enriching the social, civic, and economic well-being of the surrounding neighbors and residents.
Meet on Beach is presented by the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) Go Human campaign in partnership with the Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee, and is produced by Community Arts Resources (CARS), in association with the cities of La Habra, Buena Park, Anaheim, Stanton, Garden Grove, Westminster, and Huntington Beach.
The ‘Meet on Beach’ event complements Garden Grove’s continuing efforts to create more walkable areas of the city through the Re:Imagine Garden Grove efforts.
