Families and friends can also look forward to a 2012 London Summer Olympic preview, a vintage car show, and wander along the Olympic Path to learn about Chula Vista's history while shopping for unique keepsakes from arts and crafts vendors. More details will be announced as the city-wide celebration grows closer.
