CITRUS HEIGHTS, Calif. — Sunday Funday is coming back to Citrus Heights, after two years of being canceled by COVID-19 restrictions, just in time to celebrate the cities 25th anniversary. 

The event will take place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sept. 25 at Rusch Park, 7801 Auburn Blvd.

From food trucks and children's activities to live music and a tree planting to celebrate the anniversary, the event has plenty for the community to engage with. 

Meghan Huber, with the city of Citrus Heights, says Sunday Funday has been a long-standing, signature event for the city.

“We’re really excited to bring (the event) back for our community, bigger and better,” said Huber. “It’s really a slice of Citrus Heights.”

Huber says this is the first large community event since the COVID-19 pandemic began which encouraged the city to go “all out.”

“We leveled up in terms of programming, live music and honoring the 25th anniversary,” said Huber. “Events and places to connect is one of the biggest requests we hear from community... (We’re) going big to show the community that the city is listening to their asks.”
