On Saturday, July 7, from 8am-5pm, the North County Athletic Association presents Vigilucci’s Beach Bocce World Championship XXXII to benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Carlsbad. The event will take place at San Dieguito River Mouth (Dog Beach in Del Mar), and will feature food, sun, and championship beach bocce ball action.
This year’s sold-out event boasts over 350 two-person teams. Some come dressed in costume, all come ready for fun. Attendance for spectators is free. Organizers expect to net $75,000 for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Carlsbad. In addition, a small portion of the proceeds is donated to the Del Mar Lifeguard Association.
Parking is available at the Del Mar Race Track (enter through the main gate off Jimmy Durante Boulevard) and complimentary shuttles are provided to the beach. (www.beachbocce.com)
