La Habra Corn Festival & Parade

The La Habra Corn Festival & Parade is a festive event spanning three days, offering a variety of attractions including carnival rides, enticing food options, engaging game and craft booths, live music, and a chance to win a whopping $10,000 in a drawing. The weekend kicks off on Friday evening with live music, good food, great rides and lots of laughs. Then continues on Saturday morning with a traditional mile long parade which is the oldest and one of the largest parades in Southern California. On average about 25,000 parade spectators line up along La Habra Blvd. and 75,000 people fill the festival over the three day period and about 14,000 ears of buttered corn are gobbled up, not to mention the world famous funnel cakes that are freshly made on site. The fun continues through Sunday evening with traditional contests and live music and entertainment.
