For many, strawberry season signals the start of spring.  Whether it be picking up some strawberries at the local farmers’ market or taking the first bite of a freshly-made strawberry pie with whipped cream, nothing says ‘springtime’ like a sweet, juicy strawberry.  On May 19-20 in Oxnard, the California Strawberry Festival will celebrate this predominantly Californian fruit (more than 80% of the nation’s strawberries are grown in-state!).  This event will have more than 50 food booths selling everything from off-the-wall choices like strawberry pizza and strawberry nachos to classics like chocolate covered strawberries and strawberry shortcake.  In addition to the food, more than 250 artisans will be selling their works, there will be plenty of live entertainment and contests, and fun for the whole family!
