Curious about the history of San Diego’s incredible Mission Bay Park? Here’s a glimpse into it’s original vision in a film called Aquatic Wonderland.
“1950s Film – AQUATIC WONDERLAND – Mission Bay Park, San Diego, CA. Promotional film for the newly improved Mission Bay Park. From an old Umatic video tape from Jack White’s estate, transferred from an original copy of the film sometime in the 1970s probably.” —peahix on YouTube
We’ve been given a fantastic indoor space, right in front of the entrance to the Model Railroad Museum in Balboa Park. We will have access to the space for setting up, starting on Friday at 4:00 PM, and at 8:00 AM on Saturday, 9:00 AM on Sunday. We have parking, secure storage, power and restrooms, with a cafe just up the stairs above us. This will be a high-traffic area during the event, but with a perfectly-controllable, roped-in area along the busy thoroughfare. WE NEED BOATS AND SHIPS TO DISPLAY! You need not commit to the full weekend, or even a full day, but we need as many people and boats/submarines and ships as possible.
See photos below for an unloading map and a look at the space.

Come see the San Diego Argonauts’ lighted remote controlled model boats! We’ll be kicking off the Christmas season with our own Model Boat Parade of Lights around the San Diego Model Boat Pond. Public is welcome. Bring a chair. Enjoy the lights.
If you have a scale model boat, start working on your lights. Be sure to bring a warm sweater, a hot beverage, and a great camera. This is going to be another beautiful event!
Our past Model Boat Parade of Lights were each an incredible success. This year, the San Diego Argonauts will be hosting another mini Parade of Lights at the San Diego Model Boat Pond on
We had an awesome Scale Boat Fun Run this past Saturday. It featured a navigation course with islands, barge pulling, a great lunch and a solid raffle. Despite the overcast day, we had a great turnout from the San Diego, Los Angeles, & Riverside areas.
