2016 4th Annual Iron Mike
This Weekend: Sunday, August 21st, 2016
Summer is here, and for the Solana Beach community, that means gearing up for the 4th Annual Iron Mike Festival!
The August 21st, 2016 event has something to offer for all beach-goes: a SUP and prone paddle race; a 16 and under Gromorama surf contest; Surfboard demos by Firewire; and a festival including a board swap, live music, art auction, and a beer garden sponsored by Lost Abbey.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Mike McKay Memorial Foundation, a scholarship fund designated for outdoor, life-saving endeavors which help celebrate and honor Mike–the young lifeguard who passed away in a tragic ski accident before his time. This day is put together by volunteers who are interested in keeping Mike’s good vibe strong in our community.
The event is presented by the City of Solana Beach, Solana Beach Lifeguard Association, and Rerip: Reduce, Reuse, Reride.
The event is sponsored by:
