Name: Dana Point Harbor 50 Year Time Capsule 1966-2016
Date: August 29, 2016
Time: 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM PDT
Fifty years ago on Monday, August 29, 1966, a rock-placing ceremony sponsored by the County of Orange, the Orange County Harbor District and local Organizations marked the start of construction of Dana Point Harbor. The event took place at Doheny State Beach, during which a time capsule was sealed into a rock chosen from those forming the breakwater.
On May 6, 2016, Orange County Parks removed the 8-ton rock from Puerto Place at the Harbor to the John D. Cooper Archeological Paleontological Center in Santa Ana where the time capsule contents will be cataloged and prepared for the exhibit. “The Rock” will be steam cleaned and placed at its new location at Baby Beach.
Please join us for the festivities at Dana Point Harbor’s Baby Beach when the time capsule’s contents will revealed – exactly 50 years after the signature event. The unveiling Ceremony will begin at 4pm and a welcome address will be made by Supervisor Bartlett.
This event is COMPLIMENTARY to spectators.
SPECIAL NOTE: If you have your ORIGINAL BBQ Dinner ticket from the 1966 Time Capsule Ceremony, you can use that ticket to receive a COMPLIMENTARY BBQ dinner at the Time Capsule Ceremony 2016!
