GOLETA, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 20, 2012) - For the past 20 years, the Goleta Lemon Festival has been the biggest celebration in the area -- and 2012 was no exception. The 21st Annual California Lemon Festival, held October 13-14, 2012, was a rousing success, and the all-new Courtyard Santa Barbara Goleta was proud to sponsor the event.
Offering wonderful food, a fantastic family atmosphere, and variety of entertainment and activities that have made this the most anticipated event in the Goleta Valley, the festival included the Goleta Fall Classic Car and Street Rod Show and the ever-popular 'Safety Street,' as well as pie-eating contests, and arts and crafts vendors. Over the entire weekend, over 35,000 people attended.
The Courtyard hosted a booth at the event and distributed discount coupons for 25% off Lemon Drop Martinis in the hotel's Bistro, as well as Orange and Lime colored totes. An entertaining lemon mascot walked around the event with the coupons and became the highlight of the entire event.
