Coming Attraction: California Strawberry Festival
We are a strawberry-loving household and have been waiting patiently for the next California Strawberry Festival to roll around, and it finally arrives this weekend (May 21-22) at Strawberry Meadows of College Park in Oxnard. Yay!
I know what you're thinking. How many times can she work the word "strawberry" into one paragraph? Well, let's see ...
Strawberry pizza, strawberry nachos, chocolate-covered strawberries, strawberry shortcake (the food), Strawberry Shortcake (the red-haired "Berryfest Princess" whom CC adores), strawberry storytime and Strawberryland for Kids.
Whew, that's a lot of strawberries. But that's what the annual festival has on offer at this year's berry-loving incarnation.
We had a great time last year, with CC making her own shortcake and taking in a lively magic show. Can't wait to see where the fun takes us this weekend.
