Town of Paradise Pop-Up Events

Introducing: TOP POP!

As we enter the 5th year of the rebuilding of Paradise, the Town of Paradise is excited to announce a 12-month community-focused event series entitled TOP POP.

Each month, there will be a new community event for all residents to participate in and enjoy. The events will be hosted by various organizations and partners to highlight different aspects of our Town, our investment in recovery, and our celebration for what the future holds. 

We welcome all Ridge residents to participate in upcoming TOP POP events and enjoy photos from previous ones!

Pick It Forward at Noble Orchards

October’s TOP POP event is ripe for picking! Apple picking, that is. We’re excited to help Noble Orchards “Pick it Forward,” and harvest apples that’ll be donated to local food banks. But that’s not all: if you and your group pick more than four cases of apples, you’ll get four pounds of apples to take home with you. 

We hope you’ll take part at this historical Paradise location, founded in 1921, and spend a beautiful a few hours out at the orchards.
