One year ago, WP was the new kid in town, and wondering what kind of fun there was to be had here, all the locals informed us of the annual Avocado Festival. We cruised down the main street, tasting the delicious food and checking out the vendors. We got to know Carpinteria, and the year flew by.
This year, we are more settled in the cozy beachside town, known for its Citrus orchards, Avocado groves and flower farming. Our generous and fun-loving CEO Patti, took everyone to the festival this year, and the destination was the local brewery, Island Brewing Company, for an Avocado Honey Blonde Ale, a specialty brew that is only made for the “Avo Fest” (that what the locals call it).
The beer was, tasty and we very properly washed it down with guacamole and chips made by the Carpinteria Girl Scouts. Another successful Avocado Festival behind us, and looking ahead for the holidays!
