Centennial Countdown Update:

    To say the least, it's a process to plan a centennial celebration. Seven cities in Orange County have successfully executed their anniversary year. Twenty-six cities will follow us. 


      Our centennial kickoff will begin with a parade and picnic on Saturday, February 18, 2017.

        The plan is to bring the community together for a family-oriented fun day involving the whole town including hometown celebrities!

            1969 BOHS grad and 1976 Cy Young Award Winning Padres pitcher, Randy Jones aka "Junkman," will be back in town to participate!

              The parade will begin mid-morning at Birch Street and Associated Road, and end at Brea's Sports Park where Randy Jones' bronze plaque is hung on a wall among Brea's distinguished athletes. More to come!
