It’s my agency perception that each small city in America ought to have a lighthearted regional pageant themed round a selected native meals. Gilroy has its garlic pageant. Monterey County has one dedicated to artichokes. Mendocino County has an annual Apple Present (whereas Sebastopol, simply down Freeway 101, has a whole pageant celebrating apple blossoms). The Seattle suburb the place I used to be born and raised is understood for its salmon pageant, which is especially near my coronary heart.
Additionally it is my perception that the very best case situation for stated themed pageant (sorry to the Yale Bologna Competition, the West Virginia Roadkill Prepare dinner-off and the Texas Testicle Competition) is to your metropolis’s crowning achievement to be one thing as cheery and candy because the strawberry. And Watsonville, California, is that lucky place. Strawberries are one of many space’s major crops, and berry big Driscoll’s firm headquarters are inside metropolis limits. The agricultural hub, one and a half hours south of San Francisco, is the self-declared (however doubtful) “Strawberry Capital of the World.”[email protected] The content will be deleted within 8 hours.
