"Egg-citement" in Buena Park starts with a pancake breakfast at 8 a.m. sponsored by the Buena Park Noon Lions on Saturday, March 31.

Silverado Days returns to Buena Park for 2021

To get started, during its recent Council meeting, Buena Park City Council presented the Buena Park Noon Lions Club with a Proclamation for Silverado Days.

The three-day carnival at William Peak Park, 7725 El Dorado Dr. (a one-way street during Silverado Days), is a City-sponsored event, administered by the Buena Park Noon Lions Club, raising money to give back to the community in the form of Silverado Days Grants.

It’s not too late to give a donation to the “Booster Club,” which is tax-deductible. Lion Kathy La Pierre is the Booster Club chair; money goes to off-set some of the start-up costs for Silverado Days, thus providing additional money to give back to charity.
