PHOTOS: La Jolla Art & Wine Festival brings fun in the sun

La Jolla hosted its sixth annual Art & Wine Festival Oct. 11-12, 2014 along Girard Avenue in the Village of La Jolla with organizers calling it the best yet.

“I believe we saw about 50,000 people in attendance,” said festival founder Sherry Ahern. “The sidewalks, the stores, the restaurants and the hotels were all full and that was so gratifying to see. Adding the additional street was a big deal … the beer garden set a sales record. The family entertainment area was very well done, too. Hats off to all the people who helped and that includes the volunteers, the schools and Mother Nature because the weather was spectacular.”

Ahern said final figures were being tabulated. Proceeds will be used to support arts and science programs at Bird Rock, Torrey Pines and La Jolla Elementary Schools and Muirlands Middle School.
