Upland Lemon Festival
By: Lynn Lieu
The Upland Lemon Festival returns to give the downtown area some citrus-y appeal. This year’s festival not only includes the obvious live performances (with Amanda Castro, Ice Breakers, Minor Chaos and Johnny Come Lately booked among the music artists) and vendors, it also features a lemon idol competition, a business expo, an arts and crafts fair and local wine and beer tastings. There’s also a kids’ area or “lemon grove,” with take-home crafts, pony rides and magic shows. And of course there’s going to be lemons. . .lots and lots of lemons. No limes allowed.
Lemon Festival at Downtown Upland at Arrow Highway and Euclid Avenue, Upland, (909) 204-4465; www.uplandlemonfestival.com. Fri, April 29-May 1. Free.
