10th Annual Banana Festival: 'Banana International'
August, William Land Park
Go bananas at this yearly festival, where the titular yellow fruit will abound in the assortment of on-site eats and drinks like banana guacamole, banana fried fish, banana nachos, banana lemonade and banana wine. Folks can put their best fruit forward in banana-eating, banana-decorating and Carmen Miranda hat competitions, limbo to the music of Harry Belafonte’s “Banana Boat Song,” or even learn how to grow the tropical fruit in our region from West Sacramento gardener Eric George, who cultivates bananas in his garden and will be on hand with banana tree saplings to take home.
