According to the urban dictionary, a palooza is an all out crazy party with tons of people and partying like there's no tomorrow. It must have worked out for Jelly Belly candy factory in Fairfield, Calif., because they're back with yet another candy palooza.
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory movie actors Paris Themmen and Julie Dawn Cole have attended the event which includes wine & beer tents, a carnival with pony rides, face painting, candy samples and vendors selling crafts, gifts and food. The palooza is free admission, and self-guided tours of the candy factory are open to visiting guests, while some rides and attractions are fee-based.
For those who prefer the traditional factory tour, visit on a week day when the factory is in operation so you can get the full effect of how Jelly Belly beans are produced, along with a scripted tour guide.
