Iconic ‘CALIFORNIA’ Letters Dedicated at California State Fair

CaliforniaLetters2For those guests that have visited Disney’s California Adventure Park in past years, you probably remember the iconic C-A-L-I-F-O-R-N-I-A letters that previously stood at the entrance of the park. For a decade those letters welcomed tens of thousands of guests entering the California-themed entertainment park! And now those very same letters are welcoming thousands of guests to the California State Fair. The letters were dedicated in a ceremony earlier this week, at the site of their new home, the California State Fair’s Main Gate.

You may not know that the Disneyland Resort CaliforniaLettersdonated the letters in May 2012 to Friends of the California State Fair, a nonprofit organization that benefits California Exposition & State Fair (Cal Expo) in Sacramento. Cal Expo is the site of the California State Fair and hundreds of other events annually.

Disney California Adventure park Vice President Mary Niven was on hand at Cal Expo to help dedicate the massive letters, which stand 11 feet, 8 inches tall and weigh between 5,000 to 13,000 pounds each. Mary said, “The C-A-L-I-F-O-R-N-I-A letters were popular with millions of Disneyland Resort guests and Cal Expo is a perfect destination to continue their legacy.”
