"Orange May parade returns after 28 years"

June 27, 2019

"For the first time since making its last run 28 years ago, the Orange May parade will make a return to Old Towne Orange on Saturday.

Originally called the May Festival parade, the event began in 1933, celebrating the start of the Valencia orange packing season.

Schools, community groups and businesses would participate, putting on a show for people lining the streets near the plaza.

Until 1991, when the city's money for the parade ran out."
