Even well before incorporation as a City, Yucaipa residents have always enjoyed gathering for parades, picnics, and community events. From the early apple shows of 1911 through the 1940s, to the peach festivals and the Yucaipa Valley Days of the 1950s, and to the events of recent years, residents have always participated in community events. These events are an opportunity for Yucaipa residents to spend time with family and friends, stroll through uptown, or celebrate important seasons or events. The City hosts an annual Easter Community Egg Hunt for children and annual festivals (Music and Arts Festival, Autumnfest, and Winterfest). Other events include the Summer Concerts in the Park Series and Movies at the Park. In July, the City of Yucaipa sponsors the Yucaipa Valley Lions Club 4th of July celebration at Yucaipa High School. The annual Christmas Parade, held by the Yucaipa Valley Lions Club, has been a local tradition since the 1950s.
