It's the time of year when folks start feeling green in Stockton. We're talking about the annual Stockton Asparagus Festival, which draws thousands for a weekend of eating and partying surrounding this signature Central Valley crop. Along with plenty of deep-fried foods and novelty asparagus items (think: asparagus burritos), the festival will feature plenty of entertainment including the pop-rock of Smash Mouth and country tunes from Little Texas. Yee haw! So get on down to Weber Point in downtown Stockton, for the festivities run through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily. $12 general admission, $7 for college students, teens and seniors 60 and older. Children 12 and under are free. For more information: www.asparagusfest.com.
