Colors of Anaheim - traditions, festivals, mentality and lifestyle

ARTIC Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center Anaheim is located in California, where the grass seems greener, and the sun brighter. And the local people - no, they do not seem friendly at all - they really are. This is the place where you can recharge your positive energy just walking down the street - that's how residents of Anaheim are hospitable and city spaces are beautiful. Interestingly, the rain can plunge inhabitants of Anaheim into a kind of panic: they don't like it so much as if it is the root of all evils. Of course, this is due to the fact that such weather "spoils the reputation" of Anaheim and the sunny state as a whole.

Local people are always ready to help with anything, new acquaintances are important to them, they are not afraid to invite a stranger to the home to become good friends in the future. And, of course, to ask a new acquaintance about everything they're interested in. Local people are very interesting interlocutors - they are always ready to listen and tell an interesting story. Everything in Anaheim seems to live according to its own rules and flows in its own time: local residents live a measured life, appreciating every moment. That's why they try not to waste their time on negative emotions, getting (and sharing, of course) only positive energy.
And, of course, the on-site Disneyland Park creating the feeling of an eternal holiday and carelessness contributes to this. By the way, there is also the famous Adventures Park, which is of no less interest to small travelers. All this suggests one thought: is it the real paradise for children and their parents, which is so desirable to stay? The scorching sun of California, the best children's amusement park - what else is needed to be happy? Local residents, in turn, confirm this by their happy look and the charge of positive energy they share with anyone they meet. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

It is held at the House of Blues Anaheim in late November.

Thus, Bats Day in the Fun Park taking place in early May in Disneyland Resort and DoubleTree Suites is dedicated to Gothic, Industrial, and Death Metal. The festival is timed to the Celtic holiday of Beltane. Lasting for 3 days, the event's entertainment program includes not only musical performances but also a "black fair" with all the appropriate attributes. Of course, you can have a picnic in the park.
