This event is an perfect opportunity to celebrate Yuma's agricultural industry and to learn the importance of agriculture to Yuma's community! The Quartermaster Depot State Historic Park couldn't have been a better venue. With the new agriculture museum as well as the new display highlighting the Yuma Siphon project.

Yuma Lettuce Days Culinary Festival combines locally grown ingredients, interactive displays and programs, exhibitors and vendors, and Yuma culture into a sophisticated, educational and entertaining weekend event. Visitors have the opportunity to sample a variety of locally grown freshly made food and beverages in an outdoor setting over the weekend.

Reggi entered the cooking contest entitled "Eating Healthy the RV Way", she made a Green / Purple Kale Salad. She took the best from two recipes one by our Daughter Alanna and one from Our Friends Kay & Marlin. Reggi added her twists one of which was putting an edible Pansy on top. She came in Second and won a $150 Gift Card to Fry's Grocery Store. I am very proud of her.
