Wear sandals.
If your idea of a summer festival doesn't involve deep fried Twinkies and carnival rides on what's essentially a hot parking lot in the middle of Costa Mesa, then drive on over to Long Beach this weekend for the Love Long Beach Festival at Granada Beach.

Endless poke

We think it is safe to say that this is the year of poke. We aren't complaining, either. Our cubed obsession can keep us cool in the heat, or spice things up with the proper dressing. And the poke festival has been ahead of the game, providing succulent seafood for the masses since 2009.

This time around, the party has shifted to Huntington Beach. And not simply to a beachside restaurant. We're talking the highfalutin' Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort.

It's that time of year again: festival season. And this weekend Garden Grove is hosting one of the big ones: The Garden Grove Strawberry Festival starts tomorrow, Friday at 1 p.m. and continues through the weekend. As with every year, there will be a parade, strawberry-related food, carnival rides, entertainment, and appearances from celebrities like Sally Kellerman from M*A*S*H.
