Coast West benefit concert today

Today from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., a family festival will be held Pacific Beach Elementary School, focusing on music, art, and creative reuse.

Coast West is a fundraising effort produced by Captain Bluebird, a nonprofit whose mission is to build an indoor play area and craft space in Pacific Beach. One of the focuses of the nonprofit is to take materials that would otherwise be thrown away and finding new ways to use them in useful ways.

The festival will feature activities, vendors and family-friendly musicians including Recess Monkey, The Not-It’s, Mr. Hoo from The Alphabeticians, Ericka Corban and Godzillian.
