City of Orange Celebrates 125 Years

On April 6, the City of Orange, CA, will hold a block-party style celebration in the historic Plaza of Old Towne Orange to celebrate its 125th birthday.

As the third oldest City in Orange County, as well as being home to the largest historic district in California, 125 years is an important milestone.

On April 6, Old Towne Plaza, where Chapman Avenue and Glassell Street intersect, will close to vehicle traffic and will come alive with music, food, children’s activities, carnival games, and face painting.

At 1 p.m. Old Towne Churches will ring their bells as the Orange City Council leads a marching band down Glassell Street and around the Plaza to kick-off the official program.

KCAL 9 and Channel 2 Sports Anchor, and Orange Resident Gary Miller will be the Master of Ceremonies.

We will recognize the “Oldest” of Orange, including oldest business, resident, service organization, and more. The grand finale will be the ceremonial “Cutting of the Birthday Cake” birthday treats for the crowd while they last, and a community photo. Residents are encouraged to wear orange clothing and say, “Cheese!”

Activities and times are subject to change as circumstances require.
