Family Friendly Event Sunday: Fast Times 5K and Clairemont Day at the Bay

Looking for a fun, family-friendly and free event for this weekend? Don't miss the first-ever FastTimes5K and Clairemont Day at the Bay which happens this Sunday April 21st at De Anza Cove, Mission Bay. 

The day starts at 7am with a fast 5K race sponsored by Clairemont Hills Kiwanis.  At 8am a fun run/walk will start, geared more toward everyone in the family being able to run. Race proceeds will be shared with
the Clairemont Mesa Educational Foundation. (CMEF)

Clairemont Day at the Bay runs from 10am to 3pm and brings together Clairemont's 16 public schools with the community, both families and businesses. All the schools will have booths that will provide information on the programs they offer as well as "free samples"; for instance, the day's entertainment will showcase students in Clairemont schools. Local businesses and community groups have partnered with some to create fun interactive projects that also highlight a positive lesson.
For example, Whitman Elementary, sharing a booth with I Love A Clean San Diego, will be hosting a table where visitors will be able to build plastic grocery bag kites and fly them. Holmes Elementary is partnering with Fish & Game and Tecolote Canyon for a table where kids can learn to identify plants and learn about predator/prey relationships in our local canyon. 

There will be obstacle courses and bounce houses for the younger kids to enjoy, courtesy of sponsors SoCal Bounce House and K-Co Construction, Inc. The Paralyzed Veterans of America Cal-Diego Chapter will share their hobby of radio-controlled cars, airplanes and helicopters. The Boys and Girls Club will have a giant Twister game. Other sponsors for the day’s events include Mission Federal, AXA Advisors and Seiko Properties. 

Local food vendors that will be present at the Clairemont Day at the Bay include Pick-Up Stix, Chili's, Mountain Mikes, Don Pepe's, BonBon Kettlecorn, Mimi's and Trinity Baking. Come join us and for a good time with the entire family!
