This past weekend, Vista held it’s 2013 Strawberry Festival.  Main street was shut down so the town could celebrate the big beautiful strawberry.

It was filled of family fun, hey look is that a giant strawberry walking around?, as well as bands and a beer garden for the adults.  Food, drink, street fair, rides, more food, and a few races to burn off all those shortcakes.

The merchants on Main St. took this as a major opportunity to introduce themselves to the public.  There has been a renaissance in downtown Vista, and there are now many new restaurants, and stores on Main St.  including a brewery and Fifty Barrels Winery just moved in as well!  There is also an organic apothecary that just opened it’s doors.

Not bad for an area people avoided five years ago!  This place is really coming back to life, and people kept telling me all day that they are really excited to see new businesses moving in.

Well done Vista, well done!
