ENCINITAS — Some 10,000 people maybe more flooded Moonlight Beach for the annual Switchfoot BroAm on Saturday. The event, which was established back in 2005 by Encinitas’ hometown band Switchfoot, is a free concert held to raise funds for several local charities.

The concert lineup included performances from Parachute, Josh Garrels, American Authors and wrapped up with a set from Switchfoot.

The band is celebrating their 20th anniversary and just released their 10th album, “Where The Light Shines Through,” on July 8.

The annual event, since its inception, has raised more than $1 million for charities.
