A celebration of the Shores Park

There was something for everyone at Del Mar’s first ever Septemberfest celebration last Sunday at the Shores Park, campaign coordinator Barbara Mandel Pache said.

Highlights from the event included the beer garden, where a Septemberfest microbrew made especially for this celebration was sold, the doggie costume contest and a pie-eating contest.

“I think everybody really enjoyed themselves,” Mandel Pache said. About 300 people attended.

“People liked to just sit in the shade and chat with friends,” she said. “The pie-eating contest was something that kids and adults really got into.”

Organizers said the goal of the event was to bring residents together and show them the value of the Shores Park.

“It was an opportunity for us to have more folks enjoy the park,” Mandel Pache said. The Friends hope Septemberfest will become an annual tradition.

Mandel Pache said the Friends’ “Paint the Town Yellow” campaign from Aug. 1 through Sept. 18 brought in $82,000.
