OCEANSIDE–The Oceanside Parks and Recreation Division’s “Oceanside Valentine’s Week Event” received an award from the California Parks and Recreation Society (District 12) for newest most innovative program this past year.
Oceanside Valentine’s Week was the brain-child of Jim Curl from Event Media. Many organizations in Oceanside joined together to provide ten days of Valentine’s Day themed activities, including inflating a twenty-five foot tall red heart that was displayed at all of the events.
Mainstreet Oceanside, Visit Oceanside and the Chamber of Commerce, as well as the Mission San Luis Rey, Military Monday Weddings, theater productions, Art Walk, Farmers’ Market, and the Sunset Market all participated. There was also a 5K run/walk and bike ride on the final day.
