Has anybody been to this? How is the food?

  1. Think small carnival, like the Orange County Fair on a much smaller scale. Some ethnic specialties (papusas, gyros/kebabs, eggrolls), pizza, corn dogs, and carnival rides and game booths.

      try the sausage sandwiches at the Job's Daughters booth [they have been there for years]. The sandwiches are great and it is consistent year after year!

        I didn't get the sausage (though it smelled INCREDIBLE), but I had the shortcake from Job's Daughters, and it was totally worth the 10-15 minutes in line. The other food is carnival normal stuff.

    2. when is this happening? where?

        Thanks, KingKong5, for your info. Anyone else want to chime in on the food quality? Is there really a lot of strawberry stuff?

          there isn't a lot of strawberry stuff, but there is a great stand [huge trailer] that makes a fantastic shortcake with ice cream! the berries are grown locally and a whole section of this strawberry field is grown specifically for the festival!
