To properly fuel up for a bocce-ball tournament, Roman soldiers munched on garlic bread, spaghetti, and the occasional protein shake procured from a roadside chariot. Nosh your way to victory with today's Groupon: for $15, you get two adult tickets to The Food Truck & Bocce Ball Festival on August 21 from noon to 6 p.m. at Limoneira Ranch in Santa Paula (a $30 value). Children ages 5 and under are admitted free of charge; admission is $10 for those ages 5–12.
At The Food Truck & Bocce Ball Festival, guests can belly up to gourmet food trucks and sample toothsome fare in between stomping musical performances and competitive games of bocce ball duked out on 12 professional-grade courts. A 30-minute court rental is covered with admission, and teams can sign up at the festival. Although this Groupon does not cover food or drinks, elsewhere at the jubilee, the grounds of Limoneira Ranch are speckled with meals on wheels, including Italian eats from Rosa's Bella Cucina and Lickety Split's, a converted school bus that vends frozen yogurt, iced coffee, and chocolate-coated detention slips.
Live music wafts over the festival grounds as bands, including Lee Koch & The Grinders and Todd Hannigan, take the stage to belt out a lively soundtrack and the national bocce fight song. A portion of festival proceeds benefits FOOD Share, a major food bank that distributes millions of pounds of comestibles annually to help those in need throughout Ventura County.
