Yes, grape popsicle day – because grape-flavored things weren’t overrated enough already. But popsicles, being popsicles, are generally delicious regardless of the flavor (and if you’ve get generic grocery store pops, the taste is pretty identical across the flavor board anyway).
Scavenger Hunts: enticingly adventurous sounding, inevitably mildly disappointing. (Maybe that’s because I, for some reason, expect there should be some sort obstacle-course-like element involved, but has anyone ever really felt the prize they won was worth the effort the hunt required?)
Finally, a celebration of fruit that’s actually in season! I don’t know about the rest of the country, but 2015 has certainly been a good year for strawberries in northern California…mmm.
Get outside (unless you live in Texas — no May rays here this week), and don’t forget the sunglasses!
Fun cheese fact: the Cooper’s Hill Cheese-Rolling replaced the real cheese with a foam replica in 2013, because the (much heavier) wheel of Gloucester cheese could reach up to 70mph and seriously injure spectators. In the past, races had to be delayed while organizers waited for ambulances to return to the race site, as all ambulances available for the race were already at the hospital due to transporting participants of the day’s previous races. Cheese: it’s dangerous stuff.
Much like Apple Pie Day, I don’t know why Cherry Cobbler Day isn’t during cherry season, but in this case I’m going to assume it’s because the use of canned cherries is encouraged.
