Strawberry Festival This Weekend

The 31st annual Arroyo Grande Strawberry Festival starts Saturday and runs through Sunday. Guests can enjoy live entertainment, carnival games, and plenty of strawberries. Arroyo Grande police say the event attracts crowds of up to 100,000 people, so police are closing streets, creating detours and designated parking areas, and providing transportation to visitors. Free bus transportation to the festival picks up at the Saint Patrick's Catholic School on Rodeo Drive at West Branch Street, as well as the Arroyo Grande High School parking lot on Fair Oaks Avenue and Valley Road.
