The area was cordoned off by a bomb disposal team, who were able to safely dispose of the explosive. Upon further investigation, the bomb disposal team determined that although the grenade appeared to be live, it was considered “non-viable”.

The 35-year-old suspect faces a series of charges, including two counts of possession of weapons and carrying a concealed weapon or prohibited device, as well as several counts of breach of probation, non-compliance with conditions of release and non-compliance to attend court.

Despite logistical issues, Wonderfront Festival still offers fun discoveries – Orange County Register Sat, 19 Nov 2022 19:30:27 +0000

Returning for the first time since its first edition in 2019, the Wonderfront Music & Arts Festival kicked off its three-day run in San Diego Harbor on Friday, November 18.

The multi-genre, multi-stage festival was headlined by the Zac Brown Band on Friday and also saw performances by artists including Cam, Lainey Wilson, Trevor Hall, Young the Giant, Quinn XCII and EarthGang. Saturday’s program will feature Kings of Leon, G-Eazy, Lauren Daigle, Swae Lee, Fitz & The Tantrums and Mod Sun and Sunday’s slate is capped off by Gwen Stefani and Schoolboy Q with support from Cage the Elephant, Thundercat , Big Boi and Noah Cyrus.

As Friday hours start a bit later, with doors opening at 2:30 p.m. (doors open at noon on Saturday and Sunday), there wasn’t too much daylight left by the time fans found parking in downtown San Diego parking lots and garages (competing with annual Marine Corps balls taking over nearby hotels). By the time they finally made it to the festival, a number of guests – including ourselves – weren’t sure which doors we could actually enter with our specific festival wristbands and were sent on a goose chase. wild by security and staff uninformed to find the correct entry point.

Once inside, there was absolutely no shortage of places to find a drink. A fully stocked bar or sponsored activation selling or offering samples of a myriad of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages seemed to be in every nook and cranny of the festival.

However, there was a severe lack of directional signage that resulted in patrons walking around and asking others where certain scenes were and how to get there and where to find basics like restrooms. Wonderfront has an app that includes a few maps with colored markings indicating restrooms and entrances, but once there with thousands of people and near water, the app took a while to load.

“You’d think with all these bars there would be more restrooms here,” one fan said, asking our team, who also didn’t know at the moment, where the restrooms were. There were actually numerous portable toilets in clusters throughout the site, but again there was no signage on site to guide guests to these areas, which became even more difficult to find once the night fell.

After realizing they had stretched a little too far in 2019, festival producers have reduced the footprint of this year’s event, which offers in-and-out privileges for guests to also explore the different shops and restaurants located throughout the port. of San Diego, as they attend performances inside gated areas located at Seaport Village, Embarcadero Marina and Ruocco Park.

While there’s a full schedule of programming in each of these areas, bouncing around trying to catch all the things you might want to see is nearly impossible. Much of the guests stayed at Embarcadero where the two main stages, most of the activations, and the rows of swap-meet-style stores were set up.
