Sweet sour summer fun will fill Third Avenue Sunday, August 6th from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at no cost to the community to celebrate Chula Vista’s historic reign as the lemon capital of the world. Third Avenue will close to traffic and open to hundreds of vendor booths welcoming over 35,000 eager attendees rejoicing in this juicy jubilee. Sport your brightest yellow outfit and enjoy lemon-infused activities, live bands, sour contests, a kid’s fun zone, a craft beer garden, and hundreds of festive booths.
Lemonade Bandstand in Memorial Park will be rocking with live bands and the Citrus Stage at E Street will feature tangy tunes & local artistry. Attendees will have the opportunity to compete for glory and prizes in the Lemon Pie Eating, Lemon Peeling and Largest Lemon contests.
The Festival Fun Zone located at F Street where bungee rides, a rock wall, and more will delight thrill seekers of all ages. Overflowing with interactive features and giveaways from community partners, this over 20-year tradition is more refreshing than the fresh-squeezed lemonade offered in abundance.
The Lemon Festival Craft Beer Garden, in Memorial Park, will quench the thirst of adults with zest for something stronger than lemonade, featuring local craft breweries and a variety of flavors from Premier Sponsor Mike’s Hard Lemonade.
All guests are encouraged to wear yellow to showcase their Chula Vista pride!
Hope to see you there!
