4th Annual Vista Strawberry Festival

4th annual Vista Strawberry Fest

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.

The most popular event of the day is the Strawberry Pie Eating Contest, though you definitely don’t want to miss the Miss Strawberry Shortcake contest for your fill of cuteness.
