Fun in the sun in Huntington Beach

Once again 4th of July in Huntington Beach was day packed full of fun. We added a lot of pictures of the parade and fireworks to the site, so check out www.TheLocalHB.shutterfly.com to view the albums.
If you've been downtown this week, you've noticed all the commotion going on at the beach around the pier, so you know what that means…. The US Open of Surfing is coming to town. From this Friday, the 17th to July 26 our city will see over 500,000 visitors come to this sports fest comprised of surfing competitions, skateboard, FMX and BMX bike demos, fashion shows, and the popular annual Festival Surfers Village. For more info, visit: www.usopenofsurfing.com
Here's a fun little activity you might want to check out before hitting the Surf Open, Old World is hosting an interactive comedy murder mystery dinner show! This Friday night. It's called Hollywood Confidential and from what I've been hearing, it is quite the hit. It might not be too late to get reservations for this Friday, find out by calling 714-538-6080.
How about this summer idea: turn that back yard into a tropical paradise with some fun accessories. Or maybe you have a tropical tiki party in the planning. Bensons Tropical Sea Imports has everything you could want to transform your place. They carry all kinds of quality tropical & nautical decor for decorating. They have life-like palm trees, fish nets, tikis, masks, luau accessories and other exotic decorative arts, more than I could ever list here. Check out all they have on their website: www.bambooandthatchetc.com - they happen to be located right here in HB.
Get out and enjoy this perfect Surf City weather!
