San Diego Wiknic 2016
Wiknic logo.svg

The San Diego Wiknic, the "picnic anyone can edit", will be held in Fanuel Street Park in Pacific Beach on Saturday July 9, 2016, as part of the Great American Wiknic celebrations being held across the United States.

There are no fire rings or permanent grills in the park, but there is a designated place to dispose of hot coals, which suggests that portable grills are welcome. There are several benches scattered about, but no picnic tables.

Please note: no alcohol or smoking in the park.
