“`Use quick and convenient shuttles directly to the fest. Parking is free at designated shuttle lots located at Strand Vista Park and Dana Hills High School.  There is no parking at the Ocean Institute or county lots in the Harbor. Shuttles will run from 8:30a to 8:30p from all lots.  The last shuttle will leave the Ocean Institute, 30 minutes after Cannon Battle Cruise Ships have returned. Shuttles will run continuously during the Festival hours (approximately every 30 minutes). Please allow ample time to get from the offsite parking lot to the Ocean Institute festival site.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
