The historic Balboa Village filled with new energy Sunday afternoon, as business owners gathered under white tents to offer passersby everything from lobster rolls to boating artwork. The event, called a Kickoff Fiesta, celebrated the upcoming Newport to Ensenada International Yacht Race. It also marked a chance to promote ongoing revitalization efforts on the Balboa Peninsula - an area sometimes better known for its plethora of bars and unruly twenty-somethings than for kid-friendly activity.

Along Newport Boulevard between 21st and 26th streets, one lane was closed down for about an hour as crews diverted the water from the street into the harbor, but not before a group of neighbors dropped by to try their hand at skimboarding the nearly 1-foot-deep puddles. No property damage was reported on the peninsula or on Balboa Island, said Mike Pisani, Newport's deputy municipal operations director.

The old Newport Beach council chambers, which have sat largely vacant for more than a year, came to life once again on a recent Sunday. Mayor Rush Hill was not present to call the meeting to order. The voting buttons on the dais - "yes", "no" and "abs" - went unused. About 5 p.m., two hours earlier than a City Council meeting usually starts, attendees began filing into the rows of auditorium-style chairs. But they didn't pick up copies of council agendas as they entered, nor did they come prepared with notes for public comment.
