Festival Honors Sponsors at Mixer on July 26

The Cypress Chamber of Commerce, in association with Cypress College, will host the annual Cypress Community Festival Mixer at the college from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, July 26. The mixer, presented by VANS, serves as a prelude to the annual Cypress Community Festival which will be held this year on July 28th at Oak Knoll Park.

What started out as a very small community festival 32 years ago to celebrate the city’s incorporation has turned into Orange County’s largest one-day event. As many as 30,000 area residents attend the admission free event.

Festival attendees are treated to a Kiwanis Club-sponsored pancake breakfast starting at 7:00 a.m. The 5K and 10K Walk/Run begins at 7:30 a.m. There are exhibit booths, arts and crafts, food and games, a classic car show, an award-winning chili cook-off and salsa contest and spectacular entertainment on four stages throughout the day.

Local Teens to Invade the Cypress Festival

You’ve seen them on YouTube and Myspace, now you can catch “Chaos Invasion” performing live at the “Outpost” Stage on Saturday, July 28 at the Cypress Community Festival. The Festival is held at Oak Knoll Park, 5700 Orange Ave. in Cypress.

Chaos Invasion band members Zach Chen, Zoe Chen, and Sammy Soto met at a local music school where they learned and developed their musical talents. After a few years and a few different “music school” bands, they decided it would be fun to form their own band.

Since the band’s debut at a local school talent show with its own version of “Time is Running out” by Muse, Zach and Zoe and Sammy have built an impressive set list under the guidance of their parents. Their current set list includes: “Take Me out,” “Eye of The Tiger,” “Time is Running Out,” “Living On a Prayer,” “Adam’s Song,” and “I love Rock and Roll.”

Chaos Invasion has played at school carnivals, city fairs and birthday parties — for more details visit http://www.Chaosinvasion.net.

Continuous entertainment from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. will fill four stages during Festival Day. Be sure to check out the Cypress Community Festival website at http://www.cypressfestival.com.

Cypress Kiwanis Flipping Flapjacks at Oak Knoll Park

Got a man-sized (or woman-sized) appetite and a hankering for flapjacks?

The annual Pancake Breakfast will open at 7 a.m. on Saturday, July 28, at Oak Knoll Park, 5700 Orange Ave. in Cypress. The last flapjack will be plated at 11 a.m.

Hosted by the Kiwanis Club of Cypress, this event has become a traditional  kick-off for the Cypress Community Festival, a bridge from the Cypress 5k/10k Run/Walk that ends in front of the Civic Center a short saunter west on Orange Ave.

Dozens of volunteers will be on hand to serve you with a smile and get your Festival Day off to a great start.

The Kiwanis ask just five bucks for “all-you-can-eat” flapjacks along with a sausage, coffee and more, and all for a great cause.

Net proceeds from the Pancake Breakfast are donated to Club-supported charities, including meals delivered to home-bound seniors and Red Ribbon Week anti-drug activities for school children.

The Cypress Kiwanis Club officers for 2012 are: George Hallak, President; Jay Sondhi, President Elect; Leon Kapczysnki, Treasurer; Lydia Sondhi, Secretary; and Mike Fields, Immediate Past President.
