Tampa, FL (PressExposure) May 29, 2008 -- Blueberries and watermelon are the featured favorites during June's annual food festivals in Florida. So kick your summer off with a refreshing and fun feast.
"Florida's annual food festivals typically honor a crop grown or seafood harvested in the region," says Joan Steinbacher, author of "Food Fest! Your Complete Guide to Florida's Food Festivals." "They combine the excitement of celebrations with the fresh taste of local foods, so you can taste your way around the state!"
For food-lovers who like to sample, June also features "Taste Of" events where you can taste local restaurant signature dishes. And on a hot summer day, a beer festival can cool you off with a variety of ice cold beer. But, if you like it hot, head out to the pepper fest.
