2012 Strawberry Festival gets underway this weekend

Save the date because the 29th Annual California Strawberry Festival will be held on May 19-20, 2012 at Strawberry Meadows of College Park in Oxnard, California. Among the top festivals on the country, this celebration shows off strawberries in every way you can think of, and a few you can’t think of as well. 

But this event is much more than that. Take a leisurely stroll among the 250+ artisan and craft booths.  Enjoy some of the 18 live concert performances. Watch and learn from celebrity cooking demonstrations and presentations. Enter baking and eating contests. Take the kids through Strawberry land for rides and attractions. You will even be giving back to the community as a large portion of the proceeds from the festival goes to help support various Southland charities. So far the event has raised over $3.5 million.

Mahalo and if you go, come back and let me know what you thought of it.
