Summer Solstice offers taste of the city

DEL MAR — With the Pacific Ocean as their backdrop, chefs from nearly two dozen Del Mar restaurants and representatives from area wineries and breweries provided samples of their finest offerings at the Del Mar Village Association’s 17th annual Summer Solstice held June 21 at Powerhouse Park. 

The event also included live music, massages, facial treatments, feathered guests from Free Flight exotic bird sanctuary a silent auction featuring vacation packages, passes to the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, overnight stays at area hotels, complimentary meals at local restaurants and one year of free parking in the city deemed “priceless” but with a starting bid of $600.

All 700 tickets, at $50 apiece, once again sold out in advance. Proceeds support the DMVA’s downtown revitalization efforts.
