MLB Weekend was a busy one for Waterfront Park, which saw approximately 12,000 visitors over a three-day span. Three themed events were held at the park to celebrate America’s favorite pastime.
On Friday, and as part of the County’s Movies in the Park program, staff aired “The Sandlot” on a giant inflatable screen. Live music from the School of Rock, lawn games and info tables greeted the 1,200 people who spend their evening on the Waterfront Park south lawn.

Soul Pose Yoga was the feature activity for Saturday. Some 1,500 yogis attended two 60-minute sessions that incorporated yoga poses with feel-good music, bubbles and other happy surprises. Artist Michael Frante performed a concert between the sessions from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m.
Then on Sunday, the Color Run, also known as the happiest 5K on the planet, kicked off at Waterfront Park – entertaining more than 9,000 people with music, obstacles, inflatables, and heaps of tropicolor powder paint. Runners and walkers donned rainbow attire once they completed the course.
“It was so much fun to be a part of San Diego’s All Star activities,” said District Manager Christine Lafontant who oversees operations at Waterfront Park. “This was a great use of our space, and we had perfect weather to boot.”
