We are going to the California Strawberry Festival + Give Away

I’m excited that I will finally have the opportunity to visit the California Strawberry Festival! May is always super busy for us with birthday parties and weddings but for once we will have the weekend all to ourselves. The weekend of May 20th and 21st we will be taking mini road trip to Oxnard. It’s only an hour away from Los Angeles and I’m looking forward to eating lots of strawberries in as many delicious forms as possible and taking lots of cute pictures. Strawberries and babies! OMG.

Known as the “belle of all things berrilicious” it’s an event of epic proportions covering 15 acres with 50 food booths, live concerts, 200+ arts & crafts exhibitors, cooking demonstrations and best of all Strawberryland for Kids with rides and attractions. The Berry Best Dressed Baby Contest encourages infants up to four years of age to participate to win prizes! You know Ji and Dahlia will be first in line to participate. Ji is already practicing her best strawberry impression moves!

I want to give one lucky reader the opportunity to join in on the fun too! Comment your favorite way to eat strawberries and you’ll be entered to win a family FOUR pack. Visit my Instagram page for double the chances!

Hours: 10:00am to 6:30pm.
