Friday, April 23, 2010
The city’s 25th annual Asparagus Festival got started Friday morning. It runs through Sunday.

Kate Post is the event’s executive director. She says you’ll even be able to find…asparagus ice cream.
“It actually has fresh, pureed asparagus in it and then of course put into the ice cream so it’s delicious. It’s almost like a pistachio color, it’s a beautiful light green. And it just tastes really great.”
About 100,000 people are expected to attend the three-day event. Activities include cooking demonstrations, live entertainment and a five-mile run.
The festival is San Joaquin County’s biggest charitable event. Over its 25-year history, the festival has raised more than $4.5 million for local charities.
The San Joaquin Valley is the main asparagus- growing region in the United States.
