|The City of Santa Ana, California|| ||
The Orange County Seat.
"Don Gaspár de Portolá, a Spanish expedition party leader, discovered a picturesque valley and river in Southern California which he christened Santa Ana, in honor of Saint Anne, on July 26, 1769. José Antonio Yorba, a youthful expedition soldier, and his nephew Juan Peralta, were given a Spanish land grant for the area. They developed the Rancho Santiago de Santa Ana for cattle grazing and productive farmland. In 1869, William H. Spurgeon purchased 70 acres from the Yorba family and plotted a townsite. The new town was given the name Santa Ana. In 1886, Santa Ana was incorporated as a city. Orange County was separated from Los Angeles in 1889, and Santa Ana was designated the County Seat. Santa Ana is the financial and governmental center of Orange County and a major city in the state....
Largest city in Orange County by population and the County Seat Ninth largest in California by population....
The City of Santa Ana was incorporated on June 1, 1886. A City Charter was adopted in 1952, which established a Council/Manager form of Government. The City is governed by a Council consisting of six Council members and a directly elected Mayor. Council candidates are nominated from wards, but elected by voters from the entire city. Council members are elected to four-year terms and the mayor is elected every two years."  Santa Ana|

|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|

Kidseum is designed to be a safe haven for exploration, an environment that provides opportunities for increasing self-knowledge.
