Garden Grove Strawberry Festival 
 
 
"The Strawberry Festival over the years has evolved into a variety of Commercial booths, Arts and Crafts, Game Booths, Food Booths and major Carnival Rides which dot the landscape of the Village Green, located between Euclid Avenue and Main Street, two blocks north of Garden Grove Boulevard. The Strawberry Festival Amphitheater, located at the South End of the Village Green, which was built for the city by funds raised by the Association, provides a charming venue for the many stage shows featuring celebrity and local performers. The largest Strawberry Shortcake is devoured by hungry fairgoers on opening night. The Strawberry Festival is always held Memorial Day weekend. A parade highlights Saturday’s festivities as it winds its way to the Festival grounds. The Strawberry Festival has raised over $4.2 million for local organizations, including the Police and Fire Departments, Boys and Girls Club, Acacia Day Care Center for the frail elderly, The Assistance League and many others. In addition, local service, fraternal, school, and church groups raise thousands more each year."  Garden Grove

Return of the Swallows Mission San Juan Capistrano 
 
 
2006: "Mission San Juan Capistrano will present its annual Return of the Swallows celebration Saturday March 18th to Sunday March 19th, 2006. Festivities include the traditional bell ringing, Pageantry, live entertainment, ethnic foods, and vendors all to mark the springtime return of the swallows to Capistrano. The Mission's biggest annual celebration, it marks the coming of spring, a time of renewal and rebirth. Other highlights include Living History Members, scheduled Docent tours, artisans demonstrating crafts, mariachi performers, school choirs and performers, Indian dance groups, ethnic foods and much more. The swallows migrate annually to Goya, Argentina in October, and return to their spring and summer home in San Juan Capistrano each March. The Swallows celebration began centuries ago when Mission padres observed that the birds return roughly coincided with St. Joseph's Day on the church calendar, March 19. The celebration has achieved international prominence since then."  San Juan Capistrano
