City Council members have approved a request by the Strawberry Festival Assn. to replace three portable generators with underground electrical vaults on festival grounds at Village Green Park. The generators that provide power for carnival rides and the operation of some booths have contributed to "a significant amount of noise and air pollution" in the area of the Strawberry Festival, city officials noted.

Organizers of this weekend's Strawberry Festival in Oxnard have canceled the Strawberry Blonde contest, added paved parking for improved access for the disabled and doubled their contribution to an Oxnard College literacy program. These are the major changes in the 10-year-old festival, which will feature foods like strawberry pizza, big-name musical entertainment and a range of other activities running from tart tossing to shortcake eating.

Strawberry Festival Assn. officials have donated $35,000 to the city for the purchase of video cameras for three police cars and for other equipment. The money came from profits from last year's Strawberry Festival, which attracted about 250,000 over the Memorial Day Weekend, officials said. In addition, the funds will be used to purchase a "Jaws of Life" hydraulic tool, which helps free victims trapped in wreckage, and for a mobile unit used to remove graffiti.

The Strawberry Festival began 33 years ago when fertile fields combined with an ideal climate to make the city one of the most important strawberry-growing areas in California. The strawberry has since been all but crowded out by growth and development but the festival lives on, an annual family-oriented Memorial Day weekend rite. This weekend an estimated 350,000 people are expected to turn out for the four-day event that will begin Friday at 6 p.m.
