San Diegans Flock to Baja By The Sea-Exhibit At The Embacadero Park North

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA---Thousands of people attended Saturday’s Baja By the Sea showcase promotional event at the Embacadero Park North at Seaport Village, sampling free food and wine and artistic creations of the area.

Baja Governor Jose Guadalupe Osuna Millan, mayors of Baja’s five cities, tourism and business leaders were among officials at the event. San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders gave the welcoming remarks.

“This is a tremendous honor for San Diego, being able to display what Baja has to offer,” Sanders said. “We know when Baja does well in tourism and business, San Diego does well in tourism and business.”

Exhibit booths featured signature foods from Baja cities, plus wine and beer from regional vineyards and breweries. Real estate and business opportunities also were featured.

Rosarito Mayor Hugo Torres helped prepare a large lobster burrito, which was shared with some of those attending. The popular tourist destination 20 miles south of San Diego is famous for its lobster and includes the world-famous Puerto Nuevo Lobster Village.

Rosarito also featured a popular display of work from its large community of artists. The city’s Convention & Visitors Bureau sponsored an information booth for distributing brochures, schedules of upcoming summer events and price promotions.

Plans are to make Baja By The Sea an annual event. Additional information about Rosarito is available at www.rosarito.org
