Until the day after Thanksgiving, those visiting Morro Bay may notice a unique public art display at local businesses.
The city’s first Surfboard Art Festival, a free event that began Nov. 1 and continues until Nov. 28, displays 32 artistic surfboards at 29 sponsoring business locations throughout Morro Bay.
The event will culminate with an auction of the surfboards from 2 to 5 p.m. Nov. 29 at Fish Bonez Restaurant, 725 Embarcadero in Morro Bay.
The proceeds from the event will go to the artists, with some donated money going to two nonprofits: Morro Bay in Bloom and Project Surf Camp.
Admission to the auction is $50 per person; tickets can be purchased at http://www.morrobayinbloom.org. Checks also can be mailed to Morro Bay in Bloom, P.O. Box 782, Morro Bay, CA 93442.
Maps are available on the website or at the Morro Bay Visitors Center at 255 Morro Bay Blvd.
