Today we visited Castroville, California. It is a small town with the population of around 7,000. They were having their 50th annual Artichoke Festival. They are known as the Artichoke Capital of the World. We arrived just in time for the parade. The parade was packed with old cars, even a pink Cadillac. Jerry loves the old cars so I added a lot of the pictures for you to see.
They had every kind of food you could possibly want. We were not that hungry so we split a artichoke burrito. It was so good we took a picture showing the ingredients so we can make them again at home. They even had artichoke cupcakes. :-) The shopping tents were fantastic.
Our next stop was a HUGE flea market on the way back. It had all the usual stuff and a whole lot more. We had a great day and enjoyed the festival much. Hope you enjoy the pictures. More later from California.
