If you’re in San Diego over Memorial Day weekend, be sure to schedule a trip to North County on Sunday, May 26th for the 4th Annual Vista Strawberry Festival in Downtown Vista. This fruitful event has everything from a Strawberry Festival Run (10K, 5K and Kids’ runs) for all you athletic types, and a Strawberry Idol singing completion for all you karaoke lovers, plus beer gardens, bands (including one of my faves, The B Side Players), carnival rides, and whole lot more.
