Pucker Up For This Year’s 25th Annual Lemon Festival In The Heart Of Downtown Chula Vista
Start planning your finest lemon-themed fits and get ready for this year’s 25th Annual Lemon Festival! Taking place on Saturday, August 13th, the Third Avenue Village Association will completely transform Downtown Chula Vista’s Third Avenue into a lemon-filled oasis.
From lemon pie eating competitions to games, lemonade and cute pups in lemon outfits, this is definitely a free celebration you don’t want to miss!
“For several decades, Chula Vista reigned as the lemon capital of the world with over 60,000 acres of lemon orchards,” said Dominic Li Mandri, District Manager of the Third Avenue Village Association. “This annual event is one of Chula Vista’s longest running and most celebrated events, attracting over tens of thousands of attendees each year; a testament to the neighborhood’s desire to continue celebrating our history, while having fun!”
Although the lemon groves are no more, many of the homes in the area have their own lemon trees, reminding the residents and the generations to come of Downtown Chula Vista’s agricultural history. This year’s Lemon Festival includes live music, zesty photo ops, lemon-outfit and lemon-size contests, tart sweets and treats, and hours of family-filled fun.
See you there, San Diego!
