For the first Clemente Chamber of Commerce announced.
Participants traveling to the event, scheduled for Sunday, August 14 from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., by bicycle can park in the corral that will be in front of the San Clemente Community Center on Avenida Del Mar and Calle Seville.
The inclusion of the corral, Chamber CEO Susie Lantz said in the announcement, is to encourage guests to use environmentally friendly transport to get to this year’s festival, the first since 2019. after the pandemic-related hiatus.
Lantz said those who park their bikes in the corral can enter for a chance to win an electric bike, along with “awesome bike accessories” donated by Chamber member companies Epic Power and San Clemente Electric Bikes. .
Parking in the Bike Corral is free for cyclists, who are also encouraged to bring their own locks. Those who park there, the Chamber advised, should avoid leaving bikes behind, as the city could remove them after the festival ends.
For those wishing to travel to the Fiesta by motor vehicle, the Chamber encourages drivers to park at San Clemente High School, where a free shuttle service is offered from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., or at San Clemente outlets to take the city tram to the city center. The trolley will operate from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sunday.
More information about this year’s annual Fiesta, including vendor information and the full lineup of live activities and entertainment, can be found on the Chamber’s events page on scchamber.com.
