By FERMIN LEAL and JEBB HARRIS



ANAHEIM – More than 10,000 third-grade students from across Orange County converged at Angel Stadium of Anaheim on Thursday morning for the annual Gift of History celebration.

The event, sponsored by Angels Baseball, the Disneyland Resort and others, aims to get children excited about learning Orange County history.

Olivia Holt, actress on the Disney XD comedy series "Kickin' It," emceed the event. Stan Oftelie, author of "Nothing Rhymes With Orange," read passages from his book, which was also given to each child. Wing Lam, co-founder of Wahoo's Fish Tacos, and Mickey Mouse also made appearances.

"It was fun. I liked how I learned the names of the founders of O.C.," said Josh Louie, a student at Golden Elementary School in Placentia.
