The Avocado Festival is back! The festival will celebrate the legacy of Rudolph Hass and his family, who started a huge global industry when the Hass avocado was born in their small grove on West Road right in La Habra Heights in 1926. The Hass variety is now by far the world’s most popular avocado. As part of the festival, they’ll be planting and dedicating a commemorative Hass avocado tree at The Park.
Look forward to a fun family day with plenty of activities for kids in the youth and family zone, including pony rides, a petting zoo, face painting and more. And the ever-popular guacamole contest is back.
If you have a green thumb (or want one), be sure to attend the gardening workshops in the gym at The Park. If you like arts and crafts, check out displays by talented artists and artisans. If you enjoy learning about the past, don’t miss the special exhibit from the La Habra Heights Historical Committee, which will include rare items from the collection of Heights developer Edwin G. Hart. The group thanks the Terri Hart family for sharing this valuable material.
Also included in the festival will be a special celebration of the 40th anniversary of the founding of the city. Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn will make a special presentation and help dedicate a new city flag as they honor their founders and the past and present city leaders.
Please bring your family and show your Heights pride by joining for this very special festival and anniversary celebration, and invite your friends from other communities to come and celebrate!
This is FREE event for everyone.
