The family-oriented Rossmoor Community Festival kicked off May 6 with a helicopter landing by the Orange County Sheriff’s Department. An Orange County Harbor Patrol boat and a K-9 Team were also provided for attendees to view and photograph.
The inaugural “We Care High Heel Dash” created a spectacle, with men and women running down Rossmoor’s Chianti Road in 2-inch high heels. Many of the participants also wore costumes, which made for a colorful and entertaining race. Winners were awarded miniature high-heel trophies.
The event also featured a car show, dog parade, live band and magician. Popular with the children were pony rides, a trackless train and an obstacle-course bouncer.
Other activities throughout the day included martial arts and women’s self-defense demonstrations and voting registration booths.
Twice as many vendors joined this year’s event, including local real estate agents, artists, photographers, jewelers and crafters, along with booths from RCSD, the Rossmoor Homeowner’s Association, Rossmoor Women’s Club, Alert OC, Emergency Preparedness, Los Alamitos Medical Center, and Stanley Pest Control.
The 2012 Title Sponsor for the event was Dr. Avani Patel from Alamitos Eye Care.
