May is a berry 🍓 exciting month here at the Vista Chamber, but the Vista Strawberry Festival is not the only exciting thing we’re working on.
We’re extremely happy to announce that the Vista Magazine will now also be released in Spanish! The magazine will be released early next week so stay on the lookout for that, but we’ll also make sure to let everyone know!
