August 26, 2017 - Prickly Pear Festival - Tucson, Arizona
St Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church.  This celebration is all things deliciously Prickly Pear.  It's amazing the different and many prickly pear options there are in Tucson. Restaurants use it as an ingredient in their recipes; the juice can be harvested for beverages (margaritas, lemonade, wine and even beer!), recipe books have been written, it is said to have medicinal properties, it is inspiration for many different types and styles of art and Tucson has its very own Prickly Pear Park!
