Centennial planners thank everyone

As our city’s 100th birthday celebration year continues, I wanted to thank everyone that has joined us in the festive and fun events that have already taken place and a big thank you to all of you that volunteered to plan, organize and make them happen and especially our sponsors whose financial support brought them to reality. During the months of August through our official birthday month of October, some really exciting events are planned;  Aug. 22 is our Beach Party and BBQ. Join in surfing lessons, volleyball games, sand castle building for the little ones and a fun horseshoe competition.

On Sept. 20, grab your tennis racquet and join in the very popular “crazy mixed-up” doubles social tournament.

During the day of Oct. 10 we will be hosted by the Orange County Fire Authority as they open their fire station #44 (Eighth Street and Central Avenue) to tours, demonstrations of their facility, equipment and personnel.

That evening is our Centennial Gala-Dinner Dance at the beautiful Old Ranch Country Club.  Dine and dance the night away with the very popular and local Elm Street Band.

You will want to get the entire family, friends and neighbors together on Saturday, Oct. 24 for the Joy Zone Carnival.  Rides, games, music, food, entertainment, contests and pure fun will fill the pier area and that evening the Seal Beach sky will be lit up by a spectacular centennial fireworks show.  We close the birthday year celebrations with a city hall tour and birthday cake on our official birthday date of Oct. 27.

Don’t forget to get your taste of Seal Beach coupons and enjoy the finest restaurants in the area with their incredible offers for the entire month of October.

Detailed information on all the events, Taste of Seal Beach coupon, Gala tickets, centennial apparel, etc. is available on our official web site:   www.SealBeach100.com, city hall, every Saturday at the centennial tent. Thank you residents, volunteers, sponsors, city hall staff and happy birthday Seal Beach!
