Last week was National Strawberry Day. You celebrated, right??
Here in Florida, we celebrate with the Strawberry Festival. It’s similar to a state fair, complete with a midway and musical acts, except with an added emphasis on Florida’s Favorite Red Fruit.
In my Hunt for Justice thriller Fatal Distraction, Jess Kimball notices the abundance of strawberry fields in Florida … many of which will likely be going to make strawberry shortcake to be served at the Strawberry Festival.
Here’s a list of some of the headline entertainment this year. Which performers would you most like to see?
- Jimmy Sturr & His Orchestra
- Bobby Vinton
- Mel Tellis
- Scotty McCreery
- Happy Together Tour with The Turtles
- Sara Evans
- Oak Ridge Boys
- John Legend
Well Diane, I’d love to see Mel Tellis, Alabama, Oak Ridge Boys and of course, Reba….
Mary, you’ve got a good list going there. It’s a strong lineup this year!
Never heard of a Strawberry Festival.
Judy, it’s a lot like a fair, except the majority of the food being sold is strawberry-related 🙂
We here in Virginia have a strawberry festival too. But the Pungo Strawberry Festival is in May as our berries are not reafy yrt.
Virginia sounds like a gorgeous place to have a strawberry festival. Betty Jo, you’ll have to let me know if you end up going, and maybe send a picture!
