Honestly, I jumped at the chance when Downtown Santa Monica called and asked for me to record the events surrounding the 25th Anniversary of their Third Street Promenade. The historic gravity of this anniversary event solidified days before at a symposium that explained the early beginnings of Santa Monica and how Third Street Promenade came to be. As a fan of history I couldn’t miss the opportunity for some of my photos to end up in a city history book 25 years from now.
The party of the weekend was Saturday night’s ‘Sonic Submarine’. KCRW Dj’s Raul Campos, Mario Cotto, Chris Douridas, Garth Trinidad, and Travis Holcombe took over to make it a takeover at the Promenade.
Check out some of the photos after the jump.
