If you are in California, you should most definitely check this out this weekend :) I am going! I am so excited!
Saturday and Sunday, May 15, 16, 2010. 10:00am to 6:30pm. Strawberry Meadows of College Park
26th ANNUAL CALIFORNIA STRAWBERRY FESTIVAL EVENT:
Over two decades of tribute to the fruit that wears its seeds on the outside. The 26th Annual CALIFORNIA STRAWBERRY FESTIVAL gets underway at Strawberry Meadows of College Park in Oxnard May 16 and 17, 2009 10:00a.m. - 6:30p.m. Presented by the all-volunteer California Strawberry Festival Executive Board, the nationally top-ranked celebration serves up a menu of delectable strawberry delights, along with non-stop entertainment, Strawberryland For Kids, gooey contests for berry lovers of all ages, award-winning Fine Arts & Crafts, the Strawberry Promenade, and more. The tasty tribute to the luscious fruit garnered from the County's bountiful 11,538 berry acres nets proceeds to benefit close to 30 local non-profit organizations while
scholarships help to brighten futures.
No other fruit seems to encourage gluttony like the strawberry - especially in America, where hot weather limits the season to early summer. The California Strawberry Festival in Oxnard, near Los Angeles, lets you eat your fill early and often!
Vendors offer every conceivable strawberry concoction - kebabs, strawberry cotton candy (floss) and strawmonade as well as the more traditional strawberry desserts. If that doesn't satisfy the kiddies, enter them in the strawberry-shortcake-scarfing contest, or have a go yourself in the strawberry-tart-hurling competition.
