Avocado Festival This Weekend!
The Carpinteria Avocado Festival is this Friday, Saturday and Sunday in my FAVORITE beach town! Think Santa Barbara beauty without the snob factor. ;-)
This festival is FREE! No wonder they are celebrating their 25th year of "Peace, Love and Guacamole"!
The festival is known for it's MUSIC - which is also free all weekend. It starts around noon each day - and goes well into the night.
The Carp Avo Fest also has an awesome guacamole contest each year. In addition, you can enter and try and win for the "largest avocado" - if you want more info on the contests, you can contact the festival at 805-684-0038.
Last year - the largest avocado was over 3 lbs! That's a LOT of guacamole right there!
New this year will be a "wine grotto" - so not only can you enjoy all kinds of ways to eat avocados (fried, dipped, smeared, on tacos, on sandwiches) - you can enjoy a margarita, beer, soda, water OR wine this year!
Hope to see you there! I'll be the blond Diva with the avocado earrings!
