Holy Guacamole!

I took advantage of an off day in Santa Barbara to ride the Amtrak down to the California Avocado Festival in Carpinteria. This event is celebrating 25 years of avo-love and boy, does it show. There was live music, art and the food court was an avocado lovers dream. The vendors served everything from guacamole to avocado ice cream to avocado shrimp cocktail.

The guest of honor.

Surprisingly however, my favorite tent of the day did not involved eating. There was an entire area decorated with avocado dioramas designed by local elementary school students. These amazing and creative images left me in fits of giggles each time I reviewed the photos on my iPhone. Enjoy!
