The 92078 community turned out for the recent San Marcos Alive at the San Marcos Civic Center, co-sponsored by the City of San Marcos Community Services and the San Marcos Arts Council. The all-day affair featured fine art, a craft fair, art demonstrations, and a juried art and photography show. A community art mural, hands-on art projects, and a children’s area allowed community members to show off their own artistic sides. Entertainment for the day included performances by local schools and dance studios, as well as student art shows.

Community members also took the time to appreciate the area’s natural beauty at the 24th Annual San Marcos Trails Day. This event is usually a chance to explore some of the City’s 52 miles of rural trails, and this year marked another special event as well – the reopening of the Double Peak and Ridgeline trails, which were devastated by last year’s Cocos Fire.
