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. 

Kick off the weekend Friday evening with musical performances, lots of food, and carnival rides and games. Saturday morning, the event begins at 9:30AM with a mile-long parade which is the oldest and one of the largest parades in Southern California. Each year, nearly 25,000 spectators line up along La Habra Boulevard to view the parade, 75,000 people attend the festival over the 3-day weekend, and about 14,000 ears of buttered corn are consumed. Don’t forget to try the world famous fresh-made funnel cakes. The fun continues through Sunday with contests, crafts, music, and entertainment.
