Posted: Updated:

CHULA VISTA (CNS) - Chula Vista's 100th birthday celebration kicks off Saturday at the U.S. Olympic Training Center.

Centennial festivities include food, drinks, live music, a London Olympics preview and a fireworks finale.

Chula Vista, once known as the "Lemon Capital of the World," will pay homage to its history with a "Twist of Lemon" tasting area that will feature dishes from over 30 local restaurants, wineries and breweries.

The 2012 London Olympic preview will include a demonstration of the newest Olympic sport, BMX. People will get a chance to see athletes navigate through a track filled with dangerous jumps and hairpin turns.

P.O.D., a local band that has been nominated for three Grammys, will perform on stage.

Admission is free. Parking is $5, and tickets to the "Twist of Lemon" are $30.
