The public is invited to party at the Ocean House in downtown Carlsbad to help bring the 5th annual Carlsbad Beach Fest 2012 to a close. While Beach Fest offers exciting events and activities all day on the sand from 8am-4pm, the after party provides a fun way to extend the day’s celebration into the evening! Doors open at 7pm, offering live music on the stage from notable local band, Raised On Vinyl. One free drink ticket and opportunity to win surf boards and other great prizes are included in the $10 cover at the door, (cover allows access to the bar area where more live music is provided until 1am). Proceeds will benefit the Carlsbad Beach Fest Foundation, which works to produce the annual Beach Fest event and helps preserve our local beaches.
