Don’t Miss the Marine Car Wash Saturday, Sept. 6

The City of San Juan Capistrano will host a car wash on Saturday, September 6, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the parking lot at the corner of Ortega Highway and El Camino Real near the Camino Real Playhouse to benefit the City’s adopted 1st Battalion, 11th Marine Regiment (1/11).
