Festival Streets

From San Luis Obispo, we drove to Arroyo Grande to enjoy the two-day annual Strawberry Festival. The city was packed with throngs of people and I think we were lucky to find a parking spot a few blocks away from where the festival booths were set up.

Festival Booth

As the name sounds, the festival features several events like Strawberry stampede, Strawberry prince and princess contest, Strawberry blonde contest, kids carnival and many more. We even noticed camel rides for the kids. All the strawberry made goodies like strawberry shortcake, strawberry funnel cake, strawberry ice-cream, strawberry kabob and strawberry milkshakes did not fail to entice us.

It was certainly nice strolling in the warm weather through the festival booths that boasted all kinds of arts and crafts, face painting and the festivity mood in the air was addictive. We spent a couple of hours here and took off to see the popular sand dunes in Pismo Beach.
