Cabrillo Festival

We were to imagine a more pristine coastline in this re-enactment of when Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo sailed ashore at Ballast Point on September 28th 1542 claiming the land for Spain.
Cabrillo was a Portuguese explorer who was sailing for Spain. The festival included food, dancing, and vendors from Native American, Mexican, Portuguese and Spanish traditions.
