The Florida Strawberry Festival
The place to find all the Midway fun and games, the great Fair food, top Country Music entertainers and whipped cream topped mountains of strawberry shortcake all in one place – for one week each year – in Plant City, Florida!
We visited on their “Heroes Day” (March 9th) when all active and former Military were admitted free and we were surprised and delighted that they allowed Niki in free as well “for putting up with me”.
We came on this day specifically to enjoy some strawberry shortcake and to see Ray Stevens perform his comedy and all of his old and new songs. Boy did he deliver and we enjoyed it as well as a stroll around the grounds and, of course, some great, fresh strawberry shortcake.
After the show we stopped for dinner at another Plant city landmark, Fred’s Market Restaurant for a Southern, homestyle buffet that that is so darn good and plentiful that we only dare visit once a year.
