    • October 15, 2023

    The strong community ties of two north Orange County cities were on display Saturday.

    Crowds lined streets in La Habra and Placentia for beloved community parades and then gathered in nearby parks for festivals.

    Marching bands, a convoy honoring veterans, floats and community members paraded down Kraemer Boulevard in Placentia before cheering residents.

    The parade kicked off the Placentia’s Heritage Festival, now in its 58th year, which filled Tri-City Park into the afternoon with fun for families, showcases of local businesses and nonprofits and a car show.

    In La Habra, the Corn Festival that started Friday night continues through Sunday, Oct. 15.

    Saturday morning, residents watched the festival’s annual parade and then filled El Centro Lions Park enjoying carnival rides and games, shopping, corn eating contests and concerts.

    The entertainment continues Sunday until 9 p.m.
