The Port brought in a record crowd of over 12,000 people at its annual community wide Banana Festival on September 30th.

“We were thrilled that so many people came to celebrate the strategic role the Port plays in global trade and the region’s economic vitality. It is always a pleasure to see our customers, employees, and the community celebrating the Banana and all of our imports and exports,” said Oxnard Harbor District Board President, Jason Hodge, “We want to thank everyone involved for their incredible efforts in making this day a true success for all.”

Attendees were dazzled by the colorful water shows conducted by the Port’s two tugboats, the Simone Brusco and the Lulapin in honor of the 80th birthday of the Port. Many thanks to Brusco Tug & Barge.
