La Habra Corn Festival
In early August, the O.C city of La Habra gets some O.C. county attention with its annual Corn Festival. Three whole days of fun and festivity are held in the heart of LH- at El Centro-Lions Park, founds by the community group, La Habra Lions.
Though just one of several festivals taking place during the summer, it still does not get old coming out for a small town fair. The locals come out and get to know each other better, cute babies and kids show their smiling (and whiny) faces, people of all ages line up to get their fill on fattening fair food of the deep fried and sugary variety. Luckily for those who are health-conscious, the main feature of La Habra's fest is corn on the cob. OK, the butter brushed on it isn't the best thing but at least corn is a vegetable.
A parade takes place for one morning of the weekend event. This year, I saw the bands a marchin' and horseys a poopin' Thankfully, there was a lot of color to go with the typical parade affair. More to come in travelogues!
See you next year at the Corn Festival!
Children's Museum of La Habra
Hurray! La Habra does have a touristy landmark. OK, it's not Disneyland but, hey, it's something! It's perfect for this community. The museum is not so big and flashy but attractive and neat. It is touted as the only museum where it is allowed to touch things and be a part of what is on display. There is a permanent carousel and various fun exhibits throughout the year.
So, if you are in town for Disneyland with the kids, head north on Harbor Bvd and arrive to the Children's Museum. Give my town some attention!
Big kids and the small ones can get in for $5.00. Children under 2 years old are free. Toddlers don't have ID cards!
