2006 Pismo Beach Festa

Posted by on Aug 25, 2006 in Announcement | 0 comments

The 2006 Pismo Beach Festa was held on August 19-20, 2006. The weather was beautiful and so was the parade. Now I know why there are so many people that make the trip to Pismo for this festa!

The parade was highlighted by a large variety of gown colors including pink, blue, red, cocoa, and yellow.

This was the first time I had been to the Pismo hall and I was impressed by the large number of people and the large capacity of the outdoor hall area. This new building must hold 1000 people.

The sopas was great, although I am not presonally a big fan of serving the bread and meat together in the same pan, as it tends to get a little messy trying to fish out the bread.

The parade route started at the pier, and ended at the St. Anthony’s church. The hall is down the road from the church about 2 miles. There was plenty of overflow parking at the hall.
If you have not attended this festa I would highly recommend it, and make it a nice weekend vacation.
