“Peace In OB” & 2010 Ocean Beach Christmas Parade

//“Peace In OB” & 2010 Ocean Beach Christmas Parade

MAXOTO and Young At Art Children Center (YAA) co-sponsored a float for the 2010 Ocean Beach Christmas Parade (Dec 4th). The entry features an old VW surfer bus named “Peace in OB”.

The “Hippie and OBecian” artwork was designed and painted by more than 30 local children of OB, under the supervision of Kim Howell and her team at YAA. The painting date was a fun local event.

Think 30 kids with a rainbow spectrum of painting palettes, and 60 respective parents! Without the organization skills of the staff at YAA, it would be impossible to get the job done in an ordered manner!

The parade was a blast! The float was beautifully decorated and filled with YAA’s little artists proudly showcasing their work. Such a warm welcome and big cheers from the crowd, as we enter Newport Ave.

Thank you all who made this piece of art a proud addition to the OB’s community. You can see the bus everyday at Maxoto Auto Service on Cable St.
