It’s time to celebrate everything lemony because the Upland Lemon Festival returns beginning today through Sunday!
Honoring Upland’s citrus-growing roots, this free admission festival will cover nine square blocks directly across the street from the Upland Metrolink Station.
Feeling adventurous? Head directly to the carnival rides. For the not-so-courageous, mellow offerings like sippy-cup rides for young attendees are just steps away. If you’ve worked up an appetite by now, enjoy a leisurely lunch at a local restaurant—or,
if you don’t want to miss the water-balloon war or lemon-pie-eating contest, grab a quick bite at one of dozens of food vendors. Walk off your lunch while browsing the shopping areas and then cheer on your favorites at Upland’s Got Talent. Then watch your kids join forces with up to 1,000 others in an attempt to make the world’s largest glass of lemonade.
There’s so much going on, you can stroll for hours and never see the same thing twice. When the sun sets, catch a free evening concert. Performers include High Tide – a Beach Boys tribute band, Led Zepagain – a Led Zeppelin tribute band or Queen Nation – a Queen tribute band.
With a mix of free and ticketed activities, the Lemon Festival is fun
The festival begins today from 3 to 11 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. For more information about the Upland Lemon Festival, visit http://www.lemonfestival.org.
