Santa Paula News
With Santa Paula being the “Parade Capital of the World,” Saturday is the day that East Main Street will have jam-packed sidewalks from 7th to 11th streets with those celebrating the 42nd Annual Kiwanis Club Citrus Festival and Parade. Dianne and Dudley Davis, a couple devoted to the beautification of Santa Paula who use plants and flowers for lush decoration, will be grand marshals for the July 18 Citrus Festival Parade, which starts at 10 a.m. The Davises will lead the East Main Street parade amid the backdrop of their efforts to beautify the city’s historic Downtown. Prizes are awarded for the variety of categories for entries and everyone is either being entertained by those going by or being one of those who are going by themselves. For years people have known the Citrus Festival is a great deal, offering three days of spectacular family fun at pocketbook-friendly prices. And you can’t afford to miss this weekend’s 42nd Annual Kiwanis Club Festival, where the “Citrus Capital of the World” and its theme “Sweet Fruit - Sweet Life” will be celebrated with headline entertainment, carnival rides, a downtown parade, car show, citrus and avocado pavilion, specialty foods, arts and crafts vendors, family fun stage, and even more fruity fun and games. The Festival runs Friday from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, noon to 11 p.m. at Harding Park, 1300 E. Harvard Boulevard. Admission is still only $5 for adults, $1 for kids.
