With the warmer air comes road trips, fairs and festivals, theme parks, days spent by the pool, or along the shore. It's also Strawberry Season! To many, eyeing those baskets of fresh, sweet juicy strawberries in the market are one of the first signs that summer is here. And what better way to kick off the summer season than joining in on a local festival honoring this summertime favorite?
From small local community one-day events, to much larger multi-day festivals, these festivals often feature local musicians, activities and games for kids, some have rides and cooking demonstrations.
