While Orange County has plenty of plans this summer from jazz concerts to outdoor festivals, one of its crown jewels will be the arrival of President Barack Obama on Saturday, June 14th at the Angels Stadium in Anaheim. President Obama will be speaking at the University of California, Irvine (UCI) commencement ceremony this year, marking the 50th anniversary of the young UC campus.
In 1964, when UC Irvine was still in its initial stages, then-President Lyndon B Johnson dedicated the open Orange County grounds to higher education. Now, fifty years later, UCI courted President Barack Obama in the hopes of bringing this historic moment full circle, with eventual success.
With over 8,000 graduates and an estimate of 24,000 guests, Angels Stadium will be alive and abuzz on the 14th, which may cause many traffic delays in the Anaheim area near the stadium. People that plan on attending the ceremony or who plan on visiting the Anaheim area; especially Disneyland should be prepared for a bit of a wait and a lot of commotion! After all, it isn’t every day that the President of our nation visits the O.C.
