The Florida Strawberry Festival in Plant City, Florida, kicks off today and we couldn’t be more excited for 11 days of fun, sun and….strawberries!
The Florida Strawberry Festival is one of the biggest fairs in the nation, and we are honored to partner with such a wonderful event. We asked our resident fair & festival expert Paul Laughter to share his top three reasons to love the Florida Strawberry Festival. Here’s what he had to say:
1. FOOD: Strawberry shortcake, strawberry preserves, strawberry cookies–there’s no denying the incredible food choices at the FSF! Not only can you get strawberries any way you like them, you can also find everything else you would expect at a big fair or festival.
2. ENTERTAINMENT: See the best in popular music at one of their 22 concerts. You’ll find everything from magic shows to dog shows, craft shows and even pig races! And, if you see me on the Tilt-A-Whirl, please don’t tell my boss!
3. AGRICULTURE AND LIVESTOCK: The celebration of the strawberry harvest-that was always the original purpose of the FSF. Naturally, along with agricultural exhibits, livestock exhibits have continued to keep festival goers grounded in tradition.
Congrats to the Strawberry Festival for creating an event that celebrates the legacy of the Florida strawberry, and thanks for letting us be a part of it!
