Malibu, California — Malibu was back in town on Tuesday for its annual Wine and Beer Festival.
The wine festival was held on a beautiful sunny day at the Palms Beach Golf Course and was a big hit with locals.
The beer festival was at the same place but was closed for the summer due to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.
The festival was scheduled to be held from Saturday to Monday but it was postponed due to what many called the Great California Garbage Storm.
Malibu has been known to get wet during a winter event like this.
The Great PacificGarbage Patch is one of the most destructive events that can happen to the Pacific Ocean.
It is believed that more than half the fish in the Pacific Northwest are dead.
The event, along with Tropical Storm Wilma and Tropical Storm Jose, have left much of the West Coast in a state of emergency and many residents are evacuating their homes.
Malia Cohen of The Oregonian reports that the Great Garbage patch is so bad that some residents of Malibu are still living in their cars and living off of gas.
