Those at the event, which started around 3:30 p.m., were treated to live performances by a number of local musical artists throughout the afternoon, as the smell of burgers, hot dogs and vegetarian grillables wafted through the temperate air. DJ Haile Burke queued up funky, easygoing reggae and dub tracks to get the beach party vibes flowing while equipment was set up for the live performances of the afternoon.
