One of San Diego’s oldest cities, Oceanside, is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year and will mark the occasion with a number of fun events for visitors and locals. With the official anniversary date on July 3, 2013, the schedule of events will take place primarily over the 4th of July week and include concerts, a parade, a street market and fireworks. Throughout the year, a special booth showcasing the city’s colorful history in photos will be on display at Oceanside’s weekly daytime and sunset street market.
“Oceanside has such a rich, interesting history as a seaside getaway, a celebrity escape and a gateway between Los Angeles and San Diego,” said Leslee Gaul, CEO of Visit Oceanside. “Our goal is to have both visitors and locals share in the celebration of this milestone and gain a deeper appreciation for Oceanside’s place in San Diego’s history.”
