The festival this weekend (August 15-17) is noon-6pm on Friday and 10am-6pm on Saturday and Sunday. In a previous post, I incorrectly wrote that the hours were the same on all days.

“Unconditional Surrender,” is a 25-foot tall WWII commemorative statue that stands at Mole Park in San Diego through 2007. It is based on the famous photo shot by Alfred Eisenstaedt of a Sailor and nurse kissing in Times Square, New York City, following the V-J Day announcement.
Behind the statue is the USS Midway, an aircraft carrier that is open to the public for tours.
