Great report. I always end up missing the Strawberry Festival. One of these years...
It is unfortunate that you can only have beer in a designated area, but Watsonville is one of those places where people get out of hand quickly, so I guess they have to do something. I love Watsonville to the bottom of my soul, but that is just reality. One thing that is never in question though, is that Watsonville can COOK. That food looked great.
Regarding Zeldas - I remember when they used to have really good burgers. I don't know what happened, but I went in there sometime last year and the burgers tasted like they were the pre-formed, no seasoning frozen paties from Costco. No good.
Very nice photos! Looks like you had a really fun time! :)
