Title supplied by cataloger. In the early 1920s, the original Long Beach Municipal Auditorium was constructed on the beach on 20 acres of landfill. In order to protect the auditorium from coastal erosion, a horseshoe-shaped breakwater with a road on top was constructed around it. Because of its shape it was named Rainbow Pier. In the late 1940s, the City of Long Beach began filling in the area enclosed by the breakwater upon which a larger, more modern auditorium was constructed. A crowd lines the shore as well as on the road of the breakwater at Rainbow Pier in Long Beach as they watch a flotilla of small sailboats race. Groups of people are gathered on the grass. A large sailboat behind the breakwater sails past the festivities.
