Last year's Boysenberry Festival featured an extensive line-up of Boysenberry-flavored drinks, snacks, sides, and sauces, including a boysenberry aioli for deep-fried alligator, boysenberry barbecue sauce, boysenberry wine, and the break-out hit of the event — the boysenberry frosting-topped Fun Bun.
The year's festival starts on March 19 and runs through April 3.
Also on the calendar — Chinese/Lunar New Year. Universal Studios Hollywood is celebrating the Year of the Monkey with a festival in the park's Universal Plaza. Curious George and a Mandarin-speaking Megatron will be meeting guests, and the park will offer special food and activities on the plaza, as well. That starts Jan. 30 and runs through Feb. 14.
The Disneyland Resort also is celebrating the Lunar New Year, at Paradise Gardens in Disney California Adventure park from Feb. 5-8. During the event, Mulan and Mushu will join the usual meet and greet line-up of Mickey, Minnie, and Chip n' Dale, who'll be dressed for the occasion. Disney also will be offering specially themed food and performances on the Paradise Garden Stage.
All events are included with park admission, though food will be an extra charge, as usual.Tweet
