This was the scene at Pacific Grove's Beach on Sunday afternoon July 6, 1958 during the judging of contestants for Queen of the upcoming Fest of Lanterns. Several thousand people who attended the Pacific Grove event were part of what may have been the biggest weekend crowd in the Peninsula history. (Monterey Herald archives)
