Photos: Taste Of Huntington Beach Raises $42K For Children's Library

The 16th Annual Taste of Huntington Beach went down on Sunday, April 24, and we're happy to report that the event raised a record $42,000 for the HB Children's Library! The amount bests 2015's total by 20 percent. More than 80 Huntington Beach and California restaurants, breweries, and wineries—including several local family-owned ventures—shared bites and sips with approximately 2,500 attendees. Here's who won the tastebuds of the judges, starring Food Network's Simon Majumdar.
