VENTURA COUNTY ROUNDUP | West County / Santa Paula/Fillmore

Cities to Hold Joint Heritage Festival

October 14, 2000|GAIL DAVIS

Santa Paula and Fillmore will celebrate their rich heritage with a weekend of entertainment, food, arts, train rides and a quilt festival, at the Heritage Valley Festival, todayand Sunday.

The event is held jointly. Each city will feature its own attractions, with the Fillmore Western Railroad train linking the two. The one-hour ride winds through the area's citrus groves.

Activities will take place throughout the downtown areas of both communities, and train rides will operate at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. both days.

In the early 1990s, Fillmore held a similar event by itself, first calling it the Restoration Celebration after rebuilding from the 1994 Northridge earthquake. The event became the Heritage Faire two years ago and now, with Santa Paula included, the Heritage Valley Festival.

Admission is free, though there is a fee for some of attractions, including the train ride.
