One of the perks of having an Irvine property is what goes in and around this relatively new, active and extremely clean city: The Great Park Connection is one.

City of Irvine and Orange County Great Park Corporation have invited residents of the city and Orange County, in general, to join for the Festival of Flight. The Festival of Flight celebrated the third anniversary of the Orange County Great Park and launched the Great Park Summer 2008 series of programs.

Marsha Burgess, Great Park Manager of Public Affairs, commented:

“We are delighted to invite residents from throughout Irvine and Orange County to attend this wonderful event.”

She goes on to say:

“The Festival of Flight marks the beginning of an exciting series of programs that will be enjoyed by Great Park visitors this summer and beyond.”

What is Festival of Flight? You might ask. Well, anything that has to do with flights, really. Airplanes, birds, balloons, etc. THE GREAT PARK BALLOON (Balloon launching), KITE CRAFTING AND KITE FLYING DEMONSTRATIONS (Learn how to make your own kite), BIRDS OF PREY (Birds of prey from OC and beyond), ORIGAMI DEMONSTRATION (Learn to make beautiful origami figures) and AIRCRAFT DEMONSTRATION (Vintage aircraft will honor the Great Park’s military heritage and delight visitors by conducting a flyover during the Festival of Flights).

Let’s see what’s in store for the summer of 2009 by contacting Orange County.
