Voice: Bring back the sweet onion festival

May 01, 2002

I miss the sweet onion festival. What ever happened to it? I'm a sweet onion lover. At the festival I enjoyed the onions rings dipped in beer batter the best, and the onion topping contest.

The farmers are still growing sweet onions and I miss the event and snowbirds have asked what happened.

We have the Carrot Festival and Farmers Market. We need these festivals of our agriculture grown in the Valley and for our farmers who produce. We also have the Tomato Festival.

I have lived in the Valley over 50 years and at one time we were known all over the world for our cattle and agriculture. I have watched our cattle go. When our agriculture and water leave us we become another desert border town.

Imperial Valley Expo, please bring back the Onion Festival.
