May kicks off summer with Memorial Weekend festivals and events, the launch of summer concert series and country fairs in many municipalities. Annual county fairs (58) as well as rodeos and Western cowboy celebrations are much anticipated events. Kicking off the food frenzy are strawberry and avocado festivals, plus some other foods and culinary events.
