Surf City Days

A collection of special events comes to Main Street, 5th Street, Pierside Plaza, and the surf and sand on Saturday & Sunday, in September. Surf City Days is a weekend where locals and visitors engage in their favorite activities as both - participants and spectators. It typically includes vendors at Pier Plaza (Saturday - Sunday), Surfboard Demo Day with HSS (First block of Main St. Saturday), Volleyball (Saturday - Sunday), Dory Boat Races (Sunday afternoon), City Surf Contest (Saturday - Sunday), bands (Saturday during Skateboarding on 5th and on Main), Old Skool Skateboarding (Saturday 9-4 on 5th St), and the Kowabunga Van Klan (Saturday on Main St). It is always a great weekend to end the official summer season in downtown HB.
