The City of Pismo Beach celebrated is 72nd Annual Clam Fest on Saturday, Nov. 19-21. The festivities kicked off with the traditional Wine Walk hosted by the Pismo Beach Chamber of Commerce. On Sunday, local restaurants competed for the title of Best Clam Chowder. The most momentous occasion happened Saturday with the ribbon cutting ceremony for the grand reopening of the pier. The city encouraged parade goers to follow the last entrant to the pier to help celebrate the event. At the start of the procession, there was a long gap between parade participants, but people’s spirits could not be dimmed the crowd simply cheered anyone walking by along the sidelines.
