Strawberry Festival

Spent a good portion of the day wandering around the BIG Strawberry Festival in Plant City. It was like a BIG county fair, with a strawberry theme. Lots of strawberry shortcake, strawberry ice cream, hats, t-shirts, etc - but I opted for strawberries dipped in chocolate with a side of french fries (fruit + veggie = my version of a well balanced diet). I passed up the chance to try chocolate covered bacon which, no doubt, will be coming to a festival near you - I'll await your report.

This was the Festvals 80th year. Yes EIGHTY, I cannot imagine what an event like this was like that long ago.


Had a fun day. Those strawberries where pretty good!
