48th Annual Heritage Festival a hit in Placentia
October 15, 2012 by Mark
For the 48th year, the city of Placentia once again rolled out a carpet of fun for the Annual Heritage Festival on Saturday, October 13.
The festival was originally started as a way to bring the nonprofit organizations and businesses within the community together in an effort to help the nonprofits raise money. Today, nearly 50 years later, the festival is still going strong. This year’s theme was ‘Pride of Placentia’.
Large community festivals and other activities like this typically use local Printing Companies to provide the printing services necessary for the event. Banner printing, flyer printing, and poster printing are often needed for advertisement purposes. Non-profit organizations involved with the festivities might also require brochure printers to help provide those present at the event with information regarding the organizations and the causes they represent.
Saturday’s festivities kicked off with a Pancake Breakfast sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce. A parade featuring more than 100 entries started at 9:30 am at Morse Avenue and continued north to Tri-City Park. Entries in the parade included marching groups, bands, clowns, VIPs, and non-profit groups.
Following the parade, the Heritage Festival itself opened at 10:00 am at Tri-City Park, and festivities continued throughout the day until 4:00 pm. Activities included music, clowns, games , slot-car racing, and number of food vendors. The Craft Fair area featured more than 20 vendors with a variety of handmade items and a Non-Profit area highlighted local organizations and the various services each one provides within the community. One of the largest car shows in the area was also a part of the festival.
