Today was the 50th Cabrillo Festival
This is the re-enactment of JUAN RODRIGUEZ CABRILLO, landing on what became San Diego Bay… near Ballast Point where the Point Loma Naval Base now stands.

In 1542, Cabrillo led the first European expedition to explore what is now the west coast of the United States. The Gulf of California had recently been explored by Francisco de Ulloa, Hernando de Alarcón and Domingo del Castillo, proving that California was not an island.
Cabrillo reached “a very good enclosed port” which is now San Diego bay, on September 28, 1542, naming it “San Miguel”.
He probably anchored his flagship, the San Salvador at Ballast Point on Point Loma’s east shore.
Six days later, he departed San Diego sailing northward and exploring the uncharted coast line of California. His voyage helped to dispel myths and allowed Spain to proceed with the task of colonizing the expanded Spanish Empire.
Cabrillo also visited many of the islands along the coast — Santa Cruz, Catalina and San Clemente
