These elderly gentlemen were waiting patiently. They couldn’t wait to hop in their little go karts and become kids again.

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.

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!
