As a celebration of food, music and art, Morro Bay’s Harbor Festival attracted hundreds of locals and tourists to the Central Coast.

The event, which took place last weekend, marked its 24th year and raised money for more than 40 nonprofit organizations throughout San Luis Obispo County.

Local wineries and microbreweries provided samples of different beverages while bands like The New Rascals, Gruvthing, Sambada and many others played.

Stretched along the waterfront with Morro Rock as a backdrop, arts and crafts vendors displayed unique works while sand sculptors diplayed their artwork along the beach. For the more athletic individuals, there were the annual 5k and 10k runs.

Children who attended enjoyed train rides, rock climbing walls or puppet shows while their parents slipped off to enjoy gourmet food from more than 20 local restaurants.

Although the wind picked up in the afternoon, people’s spirits were not dampered – nothing got in their way of having a good time.
