San Clemente Pier light up 

Thursday, hundreds of people will gather to light up the San Clemente Pier.

Pier Pride Foundation President Peggy Vance says the third annual event will go on between 5:30 and 7:30 in the evening with entertainment and other activities. She says participants will line up around the pier and then after sunset with cell phones and flashlights, light up the pier. No open flames will be allowed.

She says the Pier Pride Foundation was created to fill in the funding gaps needed to restore the pier. It recently installed fishing line recycling canisters and its now working on getting funding for updating the educational signage on the pier.

Vance says the San Clemente Trolley will operate for the event between five and eight in the evening from the Outlets at San Clemente.
