Balboa Fun Zone 
 
 
"The Balboa Fun Zone is one of Southern California's oldest and last great coastal amusement areas.... Located on the Balboa Peninsula of Newport Beach.... There's the Balboa Pier, built on the site of Glen Martin's historic the first water-to-water flight, from Balboa to Catalina Island in 1912, and is one of the few piers to survive undamaged by Southern California's destructive coastal storms of the '80s. There's the Catalina Flyer, one hour to Catalina Island. The Balboa Island Ferry, only 50 cents. The harbor cruises, whale watching cruises, sport fishing, quaint shops and great restaurants. And, of course, there's the Balboa Fun Zone. Since 1936, the Fun Zone's ferris wheel has been a day and night landmark on the Newport Harbor scene, beckoning all to join in the fun.... Completely rebuilt from the ground up in 1986, the Fun Zone's ferris wheel, merry-go-round, bumper cars scary dark ride, arcades, fun food, and shops still make it the highlight of every visit to Balboa."  Balboa

Boys & Girls Club of Garden Grove 
 
 
"The Boys & Girls Clubs of Garden Grove have been providing positive places for children to go during non-school hours, particularly when there is no adult at home, since 1956 --- long before the word 'latchkey' became a part of our vocabulary! As a leader in programs for youth, we were among the very first to extend our hours and days of service to directly accommodate working parents. We were also among the first to provide transportation to and from schools on a day-to-day basis. Currently, we administer five school-age centers year-round: Boys and Girls Club, Edgar Branch, Stanford Branch, Patton Branch, and Clinton Branch. These sites serve more than 1,200 boys and girls (5 -17 years old) every day, from 7:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. During the summer and school holidays, most children are with us at least 9 hours each day. Evening and weekend activities are provided for teens. Our Family Campus, provides licensed toddler and preschool childcare and school readiness for more than 112 children daily, as well as enrichment programs, computer center and a Family Resource Library. Families can also come to us when they are in crisis, through our Family and Youth Outreach services located at Garden Grove’s Juvenile Justice Center and the Truancy Reduction Center at Hare High School. These programs are designed to accommodate the special needs of our community, offering a referral program, truancy reduction services, parent education classes, family support, juvenile offender education, drug education, and individual and family counseling."  Garden Grove, Santa Ana

All of the works are original art - another element that distinguishes the Festival of Arts from other shows.The Festival is the perfect place to find affordable and unique works of art to decorate your home or business....

Ninety minutes of "living pictures" - incredibly faithful art re-creations of classical and contemporary works with real people posing to look exactly like their counterparts in the original pieces. An outdoor amphitheater, professional orchestra, original score, live narration, intricate sets, sophisticated lighting, expert staff, and hundreds of dedicated volunteers have won recognition for the Pageant as the best presentation of its kind."  Laguna Beach
