The County of Orange, California 
 
 
"The colorful pageantry of human history in Orange County began at some undetermined point in the distant past when Shoshone Indians came to dwell along the coast and in the lower canyons of the mountains. Theirs was a simple form of existence: they lived off of the abundance of the land. In 1769, Gaspar de Portola, a military man and Spanish aristocrat, was appointed governor of Lower California. He commanded an expedition traveling northward into the literally unmapped and half mythical territory of Alta California. His assignment was to seek out the legendary Bay of Monterey. He was also to secure the Spanish claim to his vast frontier against any invasion from Russian trappers or British colonizers. Portola called upon Father Junipero Serra, president of the Mexico City Missionary College, to assist in this monumental undertaking. It was late in July in 1769 when this first party of European explorers reached the boundaries of present-day Orange County. Members of the expedition named the region 'The Valley of Saint Anne' (Santa Ana). It was to this valley that Father Serra returned six years later, where he proceeded with the work of establishing the Church and converting the local people. While the East Coast of North America was engaged in revolution and spectacular change, the West Coast too was undergoing a quiet and almost undetected transformation. Father Serra dedicated the Mission of San Juan Capistrano, Orange County's first permanent settlement, on November 1, 1776. The Mission became a self-sustaining unit based upon an agricultural economy. Its chapel and adjoining structure were the first signs of civilization erected upon the fertile, virgin soil of the Santa Ana Region.... In 1955, Walt Disney opened his Magic Kingdom in Anaheim. Noted as the pioneer of animated films, Disney revolutionized the entertainment world again with his 'theme park' recreation concept. By 1960, the neighboring metropolis of Los Angeles was 'bursting at the seams.' As the population spilled over the county line and across the rural Santa Ana Valley, it left in its wake an urban landscape of homes, shopping malls, and industrial parks. Today Orange County is the home of a vast number of major industries and service organizations. As an integral part of the second largest market in America, this highly diversified region has become a Mecca for talented individuals in virtually every field imaginable. Indeed the colorful pageant of human history continues to unfold here; for perhaps in no other place on earth is there an environment more conducive to innovative thinking, creativity and growth than this balmy, sun bathed valley stretching between the mountains and the sea in Orange County."  Santa Ana

Irvine Tour Company 
 
 
"Join us for a tour of the central and southern portions of the Irvine Ranch. Led by Irvine historian Judy Gauntt Liebeck, this tour will provide an understanding of how one of the largest private land holdings in the United States was kept intact through extreme pressure to develop, and how one man's vision forever changed Southern California. The City of Irvine has 'grown up' on the old Irvine Ranch, along with Newport Beach , Corona del Mar, and parts of Orange, Tustin , and Santa Ana. The Irvine Ranch was one of the largest privately held properties in the world and the largest in Southern California. The story of the development is intertwined with some of the most intriguing families in California history, past owners of the three major land holdings that went into the building of the Irvine Ranch. The Yorba family, Don Jose Andres Sepulveda, William Wolfskill, the Bixby family, and the James Irvine dynasty – and the native Indians and Spanish missionaries who preceded them – each left an indelible imprint upon the landscape. The City of Irvine is the largest master-planned community in North America, located in the center of one of the richest areas on Earth. The balance of business, housing, shopping, education, transportation, and open space provides a wonderful place to live in many residents opinion. "  Seal Beach

Newport Harbor Annual Christmas Boat Parade 
 
 
"Join over a million viewers as you watch beautifully decorated yachts, boats, kayaks and canoes sail along the harbor in the 96th Annual Newport Harbor Christmas Boat Parade. Presenting Sponsor Simple Green, Official Sponsors the Daily Pilot and Janes Capital Partners, and the Commodores Club of the Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce invite you to sail to the theme of 'A Winter Waterland.' As Newport Beach’s Christmas Card to the world, the boat parade will set the harbor ablaze for five consecutive nights, beginning Wednesday, December 15 and ending Sunday, December 19, 2004. The parade starts off Collins Island at 6:30 pm and finishes at the same site at approximately 8:30 pm on Wednesday and Thursday, and 9:00 pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. (Two separate routes are run on different evenings.) Beautiful multi-million dollar yachts, kayaks, canoes and other small boats will light up the harbor as a dazzling array of holiday lights and music fill the air at the Christmas Boat Parade. Many of the boats will be richly decorated with animated Christmas scenes accompanied by music and costumed carolers. With this year’s theme, participants are also encouraged to decorate their boats taking into account the unique celebration of the holiday season in Southern California. Some boat owners in the past have spent over $50,000 to decorate their vessels for the event. The Christmas floats will wind their way some 14 miles around the harbor to give viewers in restaurants, yacht clubs, on public beaches, and in private homes a incredible sight that has delighted millions of people for 95 years."  Newport Beach
