Strawberry Days has been entertaining generations for more than 100 years. The festival features a FamilyFest area with interactive, entertaining and creative experiences for the kids; a renovated fine arts and crafts fair; a food court; an old-fashioned carnival; a parade down Grand Avenue and a full entertainment line-up.  Of course, we’ll still serve free strawberries and ice cream on Saturday, just like we’ve been doing for the past century!
