Salad Bowl Festival takes over Leroy Park in Guadalupe

Ever think about what it takes to get your food from the farm to the table?
On Sunday some local residents were honoring the workers who make it all happen.
It was all part of the first Salad Bowl Festival at Leroy Park in Guadalupe.
The city is well-known for the salad ingredients it grows and then ships to the rest of the nation.
The day included fun events like a 5K run, a half marathon and even a little cabbage bowling.
However the director says the event is also about showing appreciation.
"This is a way to celebrate all the produce that makes a great salad and it's really a way to thank all the workers who pick our food, plant our food, process and ship it out to us, that graces our table, so it's a really fun day," said Veronica Forest, the festival's director.
To top things off there was also a salad dressing competition.
The winner's dressing will be featured at the annual Excellence in Agriculture dinner.
