Working in cooperation with The County of San Diego Environmental Health and the City of San Diego Environmental Services, our goal is to reduce the overall carbon footprint left by residents and businesses through an annual comprehensive and measurable program.

A free shuttle will run every half hour between 710 Beach Club in Pacific Beach and Winston’s in Ocean Beach.

We also encourage alternative forms of transportation to the event such as walking and bicycling.
