PENINSULA SCENE:

The 40th annual Ocean Beach Street Fair & Chili Cook-off lasted from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, June 22 along the waterfront and Newport Avenue, with bands playing, vendors selling foods and beverages, lots of arts and crafts shopping, a kids zone, mural-painting and community networking. As these photos reveal, lots of mixing and mingling mattered.

Funds raised from the OB Town Council-hosted Chili Cook-off were used to pay for the Fourth of July OB Fireworks Show. Cook-off judges included Mayor Kevin Faulconer, State Senator Toni Atkins, Matt Kalla, Shane Hardin, Noah Tafolla, Dave Martin, Sam Bruggema and Mike Akey.
