Sunday Drive - Monterey Turkish Festival

One of the nicest things about the Monterey peninsula is the number of festivals that go on throughout the year.  It seems like at least once a month there's this group or that organization putting together a festival on the Custom House Plaza.  They all follow about the same pattern - music, food and vendors.  I can never decide which part I like best...probably the food.

Recently we attended the Turkish Festival, which is one of my favorites.  I will admit that I don't know as much about Turkey as I should but I do know that I love the food!

Welcome to the 2011 Turkish Festival!

One of our favorite vendors, we love this market with all its unique products from around the world.

Ok, this is really our favorite booth.  They always bring 3 or 4 of their dogs, so sweet!

This is Luna, she was a puppy at the festival last year and now she's a sweet 15 month old!
 And now the part you've all been waiting for - LUNCH!

Pull up a chair on the porch, have some lemonade and leave your comment in my mailbox. Thanks for visiting my little cottage!
