|Squeeze a day of fun into your summer by celebrating at the Lemon Festival! The free festival is returning for the sixteenth year to downtown Chula Vista on Sunday, August 12.
The event celebrates Chula Vista’s heritage as the once self-proclaimed "Lemon Capital of the World.” The community is welcome to join the festivities on Third Avenue, from E to G Streets, beginning at 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Every year, the event increases in popularity bringing up to 40,000 visitors to enjoy a full day of family fun and activities.
This year the agenda includes live entertainment on three stages, local and regional hand crafters and dozens of delicious international food options. Haul the largest lemon in your arsenal to the F Street Stage at 4 p.m. for the annual “Largest Lemon Contest.” New this year is the Scripps Health and Fitness Showcase at the E Street Stage where health screenings, fitness demos and contests will take place. Adults can grab a cold one at the beer garden at F Street and for the young ones, the Kids’ Fun Zone will return to G Street.
The Lemon Festival is sponsored by the Third Avenue Village Association. For more details, please visit www.thirdavenuevillage.com.
