The first Amaryllis has bloomed. The Irises are showing their fluorescent beauty. The fava's are so plentiful that the stalks are bowing to the weight of their bounty. Spring is here. When spring has sprung, Asparagus is the vegetable of choice. All of this leads up to the 'Asparagus Festival'.
The Asparagus festival is the beginning of the festival season. This celebration of the green stalks of spring has a bushel of entertainment lined up. Joey 'Jaws' Chestnut will be there to defend his record of 8.6 pounds of devouring deep fried asparagus. Martin Yan will cook up tasty dishes. The Tubes will be performing. Jaws, Yan and Waybill, how can anybody pass up this trio of talent. The best part will be the food. Asparagus ice cream, margaritas, deep fried asparagus, and much much more. Hope to see you there!!!!
