The following information was released by the Cypress Community Festival Committee.
The Cypress Chamber of Commerce, in association with Cypress College, will host the annual Cypress Community Festival Mixer at the college from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday, July 26. The mixer, presented by VANS, serves as a prelude to the annual Cypress Community Festival which will be held this year on July 28 at Oak Knoll Park.
What started out as a very small community festival 32 years ago to celebrate the city’s incorporation has turned into Orange County’s largest one-day event. As many as 30,000 area residents attend the admission-free event.
Festival attendees are treated to a Kiwanis Club-sponsored pancake breakfast starting at 7 a.m. The 5K and 10K Walk/Run begins at 7:30 a.m. There are exhibit booths, arts and crafts, food and games, a classic car show, an award-winning chili cook-off and salsa contest and spectacular entertainment on four stages throughout the day.
