Climb Aboard Peter Brandon’s Song-Filled Heartfelt Ride

Country entertainer and songwriter Peter Brandon will perform on the Cypress Community Festival Main Stage at 1:30 p.m. Brandon, a well-established musician and true showman, has so far produced three studio albums and many recordings. Brandon’s live shows are full of energy and surprises — his songs yank the audience along an emotional roller coaster that connects in a very genuine way.

The title track of Brandon’s second album, “Drive Real Fast,” was a career breakout. The single received national radio airplay and was nominated for many awards including an LA Music Award for Song of the Year. It was also featured in many NASCAR Sprint Cup race commercials and in partnerships with fourteen-time Funny Car Champion John Force.

Beyond his many concert appearances, Brandon cherishes chances to reach out to help those in need together with organizations that include Finally Home Foundation, Juvenile Diabetes Foundation, OC Walk to Remember, GINA for Missing Persons and John Force’s ChiPS for Kids.

“There is nothing like the thrill of performing live and sharing my music with others,” says Brandon. “I have a great group of friends that have a blast making music together. The fun we have on stage really shines through to the audience, because it is sincere and genuine. We love what we do, and I think it shows.”

The Cypress Community Festival will open at 9:00 a.m. On Saturday, July 28, on the grounds of Oak Knoll Park, 5700 Orange Ave. (west of Valley View St.) in Cypress.

2012 Cypress Community Festival Date Set For July 28th

The date for the 32nd annual Cypress Community Festival has been set for Saturday, July 28, 2012. The public is invited to attend this annual “birthday party” for the City of Cypress and admission is free. This huge event has become a tradition in the community as families, friends and neighbors commemorate the date of incorporation of Cypress by enjoying the Festival.

The Festival is produced by a dedicated group of volunteers known as the Cypress Community Festival Association. This group of about 20 community residents meets on the third Wednesday of each month from January through September to plan and produce the celebration.

The Cypress Community Festival is held at Oak Knoll park located at 5700 Orange Avenue. Festival day begins at 7 a.m. with the Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast. Then there is the annual 5K/10K run/walk which starts at 7:30 a.m. The Festival grounds are open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Craft vendors from all over the southland bring their wares to sell and display. Crafters, artisans, non-profit groups and individuals desiring booth space may email: vendors@cypressfestival.com.

The event is the largest one-day Festival in Orange County and draws about 30,000 visitors each year. Families will discover activities for all ages. There are food vendors, rides for the kids, game booths and clowns.

The annual classic car show draws a large crowd. Last year there were many participants in the hot and spicy chili cook-off and the salsa contest. In addition, the Cypress Chamber of Commerce conducts a Business Expo at the Festival where many companies large and small are able to display their products and services as they reach out to the community.

“We are looking forward to an exciting Festival again this year,” said Carol Fafara, the Festival Entertainment Chair. There will be shows throughout the day on four stages. Planned artists and entertainers for the 2012 Festival include: country artist Peter Brandon, the Chris Anderson Group Go Country 105 FM, and many other bands, artists and dancers.

Past Festivals have included appearances by Snoopy from Knott’s Berry Farm, a magic show by Ronald McDonald and a police dog demonstration by the Cypress Police Canine Unit. Local non-profit organizations have information booths to let the community know about their activities and Festival visitors are invited to cheer for their favorite youth softball teams.

The Festival is dependent on sponsorship support from local corporations, businesses and individuals. In 2011 major support was received from the law offices of Aleshire & Wynder, LLP; Consolidated Disposal Service; The Event News; The Gardens – Hawaiian Gardens Casino; Go Country 105 FM; The Grand Prix Association of Long Beach; The HomeMag of Orange County; UnitedHealthcare and Yamaha Motors Corp. – USA.
