I attended this event as a photographer from 10-1pm and a cosplayer from 1-2pm. The parking at Torrance Beach was $7 and the parking lot was pretty empty when I got there, but it started to fill up around 1pm. This is a pretty quiet and empty beach in the morning. However, after 1pm it started to fill up (like the parking lot), especially with the gathering going on. I was really happy that the parking lot was so close to the beach so I made several trips to get my gear and change.
