Annual Lemon Festival to Follow Lemon Launch

The Goleta Valley Chamber of Commerce adds zest to the Annual Lemon Launch by inviting business sponsors to bring their families and local engineers to test their lemon launching capabilities.

The Goleta Valley Chamber of Commerce and the Lemon Festival committee invite the public to celebrate the kick off to lemon season in Goleta with the Lemon Launch Wednesday, Sept. 16, from 5 to 7 p.m. at Glen Annie Golf Club.  

New for 2015, the Lemon Launch is a family-friendly event. Kids can enjoy a bounce house, corn hole games and face painting. 

Attendees will enjoy fabulous bites from the Frog Bar & Grill, ale from Hollister Brewing Company and wine from Oreana Winery.

Businesses can get more involved by launching lemons! Local businesses are competing to launch lemons from the event lawn to hole 9. 

All Lemon Festival sponsors and children are free for this event. To register, visit www.GoletaValley.com.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
