What Lifes All About
Fountains of chocolate proved popular and the champagne glass holding a .75 karat diamond drew interest. But the most popular items at the 16th annual Taste of the Town on Sunday were cold.
More than 1,000 people milled about the Castaic Lake Water Agency Water Conservatory Garden in the more than 100 degree heat to sample treats offered by dozens of food vendors at the annual event.
Crowds mobbed the small Fresher’s Soft Frozen Lemonade stand throughout the afternoon. A server at the stand, 21-year-old Kristina Ozuna of Canyon Country, quickly manufactured the cups of lemon slush, but could not get ahead of the crowd.
“It’s going pretty fast... I can’t keep up with the demand,” Ozuna said as she continued to scoop lemonade. “It’s so hot out here.”
Bottles of water, provided by the Castaic Water Agency, were placed in buckets of ice throughout the gardens. Festival-goers snatched the bottles up almost as quickly as they were replaced.
“It’s pretty hot,” said Kathy Rogers of Stevenson Ranch. “It would be nice if they had this indoors.”
