There is still time to catch the Florida Strawberry Festival in Plant City, which is going on thru March 13th. Along with your chance to taste some scrumptious strawberry shortcake, among other things, there are special events going on daily, including concerts and midway rides. Some of the events include parades, livestock shows, many exhibits, poultry and rabbit shows, lamb costume contest, etc. Concerts include some great acts including Tanya Tucker, Rick Springfield, Chubby Checker, George Jones, The Doobie Brothers, Billy Ray Cyrus, and the popular Lady Antebellum will perform on Sunday, the 13th. Most of the headliners require a separate ticket in addition to festival admission, which is $10 for adults; $5 for children 6-12; Free for children 5 and under.
I’m considering getting into the strawberry shortcake eating contest – I don’t think I’d win, but I’d sure like to try!
