Crow’s Nest

This weekend, Belmont Veteran’s Memorial Pier will be the site of “Pier Daze” Seafood and Pirate Festival as part of the three month long Sea Festival in Long Beach. Saturday and Sunday, June 30 and July 1 there will be lots to do at the base of the pier located at the end of 39th Pl. near Ocean Blvd.

Saturday there will be a mock pirate invasion on the pier with a cast of actors attacking the pier and the  patrons on the pier will put up a mighty defense of their own. There will be a pirate costume contest and kids treasure hunt, too. Both days will have great seafood and barbeque available, bands playing on the beach and a kid’s fun zone set up in the sand.

Sunday at the Pier Daze Festival is the day for classic rock ‘n roll music while admiring the classic “woody” automobiles that will be on display. Sunday is also the day of the Pacific Open Water Challenge, which includes swimming races, kayak and paddleboard competitions and the “Canine Splash and Dash.”
