2014 Sea Wheeze Race Recap, Part 4: The Sunset Festival
This year we made it to the Sunset Festival, held the afternoon of the race. We took the shuttle buses that left from the Convention Center. We skipped the yoga and left about 5:30-6:00 pm for the concert. There were hugely long lines for the three food tents when we got there and they only got much longer behind us. The choices for food were Canadian, Mexican, or Healthy (tiny jars of salad). Prices were not cheap. Our burritos, made with brown rice and organic this and that, were $12 each and nachos were $6. The burritos were meh but the guacamole with the nachos was delish. The food was cash only so there was another enormous line, at least 40 people long when we got there, for the ATM machine.
My niece really wanted to try the trapeze but the line was too long.

There were various vendor booths set up, selling malas and other items. Lululemon had a table of Sunset Festival Scubas in Sunny Lime and Pipe Dream Blue. My sister picked up the Sunny Lime Scuba, which matched her Sea Wheeze swirly rainbow print shorts perfectly.
People think these were re-purposed Scubas that didn't sell but making special edition products out of leftover items by embroidering or screen printing them is not a bad idea at all. I really like the bicycle print CRB I bought.

It was a fun concert and a mellow crowd in the area we were sitting in but I think next year we'll make sure to eat before we go.
Did you go? What did you think?
