The first-ever Carmel River Festival and Feast 2013
The first-ever Carmel River Festival and Feast in Carmel Valley was organized to celebrate the start of the 92-year-old San Clemente Dam's removal.
The $84 million project to reroute the river and destroy the 106-foot-high dam is expected to take several years but restore 25 miles of spawning and rearing habitat for the steelhead trout, as well as improve the ecosystem along the waterway.
"It's a new age of restoration," festival organizer Jack Ellwanger said.
