On Wednesday, September 18, the hardworking staff of the Goleta Lemon Festival held a ‘Lemon
Launch' at the beautiful Glen Annie Golf Club. This was an opportunity to thank the numerous sponsors
and to mingle and mix with locals.
With the gorgeous vista and setting sun behind, everyone sampled beer, wine, and lemonade as well as
delicious tri tip, cheeses and crackers, pasta and more. For a few hours, everyone gathered to eat, talk,
and celebrate all that is lemon in anticipation of the festival.
The Lemon Fest staff announced that this year, instead of the 5k run that has been a feature of the
festival in the past, there will be a kid's run as well as a family memorial walk. This will be a chance for
families to don memorial gear and celebrate people they have known who have suffered from cancers.
There will be a variety of other entertainment and activities (like a golf ball drop!) as well as wonderful
lemony foods and drinks so be sure to visit Girsh Park next weekend!
