8:30 a.m., Sept. 24
Vista Strawberry Festival
The seventh-annual event begins with various early-morning strawberry runs for all ages. From there we have the Miss Strawberry Pageant, a Strawberry Idol competition, multiple contests involving cooking, costumes, and pie-eating, entertainment on several stages, carnival rides, a craft beer garden, and over 400 local vendors. For those not in the know, Vista was considered the strawberry capital of the world during the ’60s and ’70s.
