Five Friday Faves {This Week’s Edition}

1. Collection at River Park Fashion Show

Get your tickets now, because they are going fast!  This Sunday, May 22 at 10am, several of the shopping center’s leading fashion retailers will contribute to the afternoon’s spring fashion showcase — models and their adoptable canine companions will be showing off the latest spring looks from M Fredric, Francesca’s, LOFT and many more!

Nosh on appetizers, have your makeup done at the Beauty Bar, and get a sweet swag bag filled with merch — sounds like a win-win to us, right?!

2. California Strawberry Festival [Oxnard]

I mean, who doesn’t like strawberries?!  Try your hand at one of the many contests, such as a strawberry tart toss, strawberry shortcake build-off contest, strawberry relay, berry hat contest, and so much more.

The kids will love StrawberryLand, and you will love trying more strawberry-centric food items than you could ever imagine.  Get your tickets online to beat the crowds!

3. Strawberry Picking [Underwood Farms Moorpark]

Speaking of strawberries, we recently went strawberry picking at Underwood Farms in Moorpark with Reese and her Horizon Hills class and she loved it! It was so fun to help her pick strawberries and of course she had to eat some along the way.  This is a great idea for your little ones and of course you can stop by and visit the animals and the market for more fresh local produce!


4. New Downtown Proposal [Thousand Oaks]

We all know that Thousand Oaks seemed to be “missing” a downtown area — lucky for us, there are now plans to revitalize a large section of Thousand Oaks Blvd.! The city is likely to break ground next year (and you can bet that we will be there!). Stay tuned!

5. Picnic & Pedal [Ojai Valley Inn & Spa]

We love this idea for guests staying at the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa! Just grab a bike from the bike kiosk by Golf Ojai, fill up a picnic basket with goodies from Libbey’s Market, and then use the picnic map to find the perfect spot to enjoy your picnic! Totes adorbs.
