The annual Hermosa Beach Fine Arts Festival takes place June 8 and 9, at the Hermosa Beach Community Center, on the corner of Pier Avenue and Pacific Coast Highway.

The event, which takes place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m, features booths of local and national artists, a student art exhibit, art activities for children and other events. South Bay's Joanna Garel, who painted the “Lifeguards in Hermosa” mural that is part of the Hermosa Beach Murals Project, is the event's featured artist.

Hosted by the Art Group of Hermosa Beach, proceeds from the festival are donated to art education programs and scholarships in local schools.
