More about Frankie & The Pool Boys

Frankie & the Pool Boys: surf band, party band. There’s five of them, so come to get more familiar with the tiny cult that is instro-mental surf music. They sure know about you– you dance to the surf beat. Learn more about this fun band on their Facebook page.

Meet The Flying Salvias  back by popular demand!

The Flying Salvias are a piano/vocal and sometimes guitar duo, playing their signature Ameri-kind-uh music, blending country, pop, blues, beatnik jazz, swing, and old hippy, though not usually all in the same song.

Free Beach Shuttle from Cabrillo School, 601 Crespi Drive

Parking near the Taco Bell will be very limited so please think about alternative way to come to the EcoFest. We will have free beach shuttle service and free parking at Cabrillo School 601 Crespi Drive.

Handicapped parking spots available near the Taco Bell.

The Beach Shuttle will drive from Cabrillo to Hwy one and go in the main parking lot, drop off in the corner of the main lot. It will then get back on Hwy 1 to the right, turn left on Linda Mar Blvd and turn left on DeSolo and left on Crespi and back to the Cabrillo stop.
There are two shuttles that will be spaced about 5 minutes apart.
