Midway City Celebrates Street Festival
(Santa Ana) – Midway City’s community center will be the site of Saturday’s (July 15) Summer Festival as well as the recipient of the day’s fundraising efforts. The day of food, fun, games and information is co-sponsored by the Midway City Community Organization, Midway City Chamber of Commerce and Homeowners Association, the gang prevention/youth development project of Community Services Programs, Inc. (CSP), and the County of Orange.

Festival hours will be from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the community center, 14900 Park Lane in Midway City. Entertainment and displays will spill into the center’s parking lot so no parking will be allowed that day. Admission is free and refreshments are low-cost.

Children will enjoy a rock climber ride, bouncehouse and slide, and face painting. Music will be provided throughout the day by local bands with performances by dance groups. Displays will include a fire truck, Sheriff Department cruiser, Probation Department drug dog, and martial arts demonstrations. The County’s festival booths will provide information about services from such departments as Health Care Agency, Social Services Agency, Probation, Housing and Community Development, Area Agency on Aging, the Planning Department’s code enforcement section, OC Conservation Corps, and the Westminster Police Department.

Festival-goers will receive give-aways at the information booths and can register for opportunity drawings for sports equipment and passes to such places as Disneyland, Magic Mountain and Wild Rivers.

Refreshments were donated by Coca-Cola, La Casa Garcia of Anaheim and CSP.

"This is the second event we’ve co-sponsored in this unincorporated area," said Chuck V. Smith, Chairman of the Board of Supervisors. "Our goal is to enhance services to this area and encourage a sense of pride and community. And on this occasion – to have a lot of fun."

Proceeds from the festival will benefit the community center which sponsors programs for both the younger and older residents of Midway City. There are after-school and summer programs for young people as well as a hot meal program, recreation and language classes for older adults.
