This annual rough water USA Swimming event brings swimmers from all to compete in the open water. In fact, Mission Viejo brought 50 swimmers from the Nadadores Swim Club. One swimmer said, “He had completed in this event for the past thirty years. He only missed one year when his son got married.”

The City of Seal Beach is always hosting fun events. It is currently celebrating its 100th year as a city. There will be a Centennial “Movie Night in the Park” on June 20, 2015 at Edison Park. The feature film will be Paul King’s movie, Paddington.

The city’s original name was Bay City. However San Francisco did not like the name because they were known as the city by the bay. So, in 1915 when Bay City became incorporated they had to change their name, and the city became known as Seal Beach.
