On Thursday, November 13, the City Council voted to cancel the Avocado Festival for 2015. The stated reason was that the city personnel were too busy. The intention was to revive the festival in 2016 – but we’ll have to see how that goes. Without the continuity, it is difficult to put on such a festival.

Thank you to all who have continued to “like” this page even long after the last festival was over.

A traffic jam foiled a woman’s attempt to elude police during a chase that started in La Habra Monday afternoon.
The motorist refused to pull over when police attempted to make a traffic stop about 1:30 p.m. because it appeared the vehicle she was driving was stolen, La Habra police Lt. Dean Capelletti said.
The chase, which at times reached high speeds, wound its way through surface streets in Brea and Fullerton before ending on Euclid Street near the Riverside (91) Freeway just before 1:50 p.m., Capelletti said.
“She obeyed commands when she saw she couldn’t go anywhere,” he said. “She was taken into custody without much hoopla.”
The woman’s name was not immediately released.
