ventura events: Ventura Strawberry Festival 2024 - 05/05/24 05:04 PM
May 20th is National Pick Strawberries Day. We learned a few interesting facts about the strawberry that we would love to share. For example, did you know that the strawberry is actually part of the rose family? (The Rosacaeae family to be precise.) A cup of strawberries contains more Vitamin C than a medium orange. California grows approximately 80% of all strawberries produced in the entire United States. So, it makes sense that the Ventura Strawberry Festival takes place later this month.

ventura events: Seaside Highland Games & Scottish Festival 2023 - 10/01/23 03:27 PM
Most people know about Scotch whiskey and haggis. But did you know that eggnog originated from the Scottish Auld Man's Milk? And butterscotch candy made its way to our shores courtesy of Scottish immigrants. Even Southern Fried Chicken owes its beginnings to both the Scots and West African people settling in the south. In Scotland, one way to celebrate the culture is through sport. Stateside, we celebrate with them through the Seaside Highland Games & Scottish Festival 2023 right here in Ventura.

When the Pacific Ocean sits right in your own backyard, you tend to focus on maintaining its health and beauty. But we all should focus on keeping our oceans clean every day.
