"You can expect a lot of people," says Vicky DeLong, Director of the Bonita Museum and Cultural Center which benefits from the proceeds. "After you fill yourself up, people can come over to the Museum for a tour," adds DeLong. Among the exhibits is one called "Past Tents." Yup, you got it, it's the history of camping. Tents...get it? It's one of the most unique shows around. "People even brought their china plates to camp. There's even a desk that someone brought, to work while they were camping, " points out DeLong.
The Taste of Bonita is in its 17th year. It brings communities together and "people see each other whom they haven't seen in a long time, " say DeLong. And it's a little different than other "Taste of" events where you walk around to the particular restaurant, she says all of the participating restaurants from Chula Vista, Eastlake, National City and Bonita set up tables in one location--at the Chula Vista Golf Course.
