Avo Crazy in Carp

“We’re just here eating as much avocado as possible!” said Lindsey Richardson, while her kids, (from left) William, Lily, and Abby, munched on some tasty guacamole and chips. The Richardson family, along with thousands of others, descended upon Linden Avenue in Carpinteria this weekend to enjoy the 28th annual California Avocado Festival. The festival is home to everything avo, from ice cream to egg rolls, and boasts being the largest free music festival in California.
