Time for another Huell Howser-style outing to an obscure, hard-to-reach Orange County locale. This weekends hometown field trip destination? La Habra, in the far northwest of the county. With no direct freeway access, you kinda have to want to visit unless you live there (like Octomom) or take your own brood to this 100-year-old burgs world-class childrens museum. Overshadowed in OC agricultural history by next-door La Habra Heightsproud home of the original world-famous Hass avocadothe Chamber of Commerce fights back with a Spring Citrus Fair, celebrating its own juicy legacy and promoting citizen backyard growing with garden demonstrations, carnival rides, a song fest, funnel cakes, candied apples and, one hopes, plenty of lemons, oranges and grapefruit. Citrus fair? No, citrus excellent!
