SAN DIEGO, California -- Another Hillcrest CityFest has passed but thanks to local videographer GSO Productions, the 30th annual event can be re-lived on video.
The fun 3 ½ minute video is a compilation of clips taken throughout the day-long event on Sunday, Aug. 10, from set-up until the night time dance party that took over University Avenue.
Hillcrest CityFest is an annual community celebration that was started in 1984 after the re-lighting of the iconic neon Hillcrest sign. At the time, the sign had been dark for decades, and the re-lighting was a symbol of the neighborhood’s rebirth.
Thirty years later, neighbors and visitors still gathers under the sign each August for Hillcrest CityFest, which has become one of the largest street festivals and outdoor parties in San Diego.
Produced by the Hillcrest Business Association, this year’s celebration included blocks of vendors and crafters, food, drinks, entertainment, and lots of neighborhood spirit. Next year’s Hillcrest CityFest will take place on Sunday, Aug. 9.
