Community Heroes join in Mardi Gras Celebration at LA County Fair

It was Rancho Cucamonga Day at the LA County Fair and two of the city’s most cherished residents were at the center of the parade.

Victoria Jones, a longtime Rancho Cucamonga resident who has dedicated countless hours to community service and the RC Healthy Living program was honored, as was teenager Matthew Hawker, Jr., who saved a woman and her son from a burning home in May of 2015.

35 citizens received such honors from various communities during the 2015 fair, including Rancho Cucamonga, who along with individuals from Montclair and Claremont had their day September 11, 2015.

California Life’s Brent Weber tries to never miss a parade, a celebration or the Fair, and this one was no exception!
