According to Scott Miller and Tom Ybarra, these are their primary concerns:

APPLIANCES: They are in need of a WORKING griddle, deep fryers, and gently used stoves & refrigerators.

FOOD BOOTHS: Have you ever thought of having your family and friends run a food booth of your very own. Well, this is the opportunity to help your parish community AND have a great time. They are looking for authentic home-cooked food to join our food venue. Perhaps an Italian booth with meatball sandwiches or a simple pasta? Do you have a special recipe you would like to share with your Parish Community? They are open to ideas!

SPONSORSHIPS: Business Partnership Opportunities for you to think outside of the box to promote your business or to show appreciation for our Parish Community who are committed to supporting those who support them.

Do you have a DIRECT connection for items they may use or need at La Fiesta? In exchange for discounts or donations of product they will proudly promote those businesses who would like the opportunity. The connection may be for food items, paper goods and soft drinks to name a few. They are also looking for party supplies and décor as well as prizes for their games. Please don’t be shy! ANY help will be appreciated.

For more information, please call the Parish Office at 562-691-0533 or e-mail them at lafiesta@olglahabra.org

Thank you again for your support!

Citrus Fair 2016

Early Saturday evening on the main stage we had square dancing, line dancing and Country Barn Dance with the band Fort Worth West. The Main stage rocked the evening with a special band called The Hit Squad featuring a wide selection of dance music. Sunday was International Day with music and dance representing Latin America, Asia, Hawaii, Europe and more.

Go to the Citrus Fair Website

The amazing crowd just kept getting bigger and bigger. Evening was even more crowded.

If you missed the Citrus Fair you missed half your life!! But don’t worry, when spring comes around next year and you see 40,000 people marching down La Habra Blvd between Euclid and Cypress streets, you’ll know that the Citrus Fair has arrived.

Bravo to Mark Sturdevant and the Chamber staff … and a host of volunteers who made this such a success.

Was that who I think it was? MJ’s impersonator was a real thrilla!
