Recap - Carpinteria Avocado Festival

Seriously - what could be better than avocados, California wine and hand-crafted treasures on the beach? Throw in a spectacular fall day - and it's seriously the California lifestyle at its very best.

Here are some photos of all that was there. Put next year's dates on your calendar NOW and make sure you visit. It was a great event for kids, parents, singles, -- any one with a pulse. ;-)

List of Photos covered: 

  • Avocado Chocolate Truffles
  • Palm Trees on Linden Avenue (Festie Site)
  • Local growers sell premium fruit
  • Loads of bands and dancers
  • Unique foods - like Avo Ice Cream
  • A good mile or two of booths - crafts & food
  • Avocado Pie - new offering!
  • Hit the beach afterwards - surf, boogie board, rest or fish

Next year it's October 5 - 7, 2012. Mark it down now and go!

Palm trees and avocados - Diva's paradise!
