Also speaking during the kickoff was Mayor Mike Beamish, a former festival chairman, and Natalie Rohlfs of the Future Begins Today program, one of the many nonprofits that benefit from sales during the festival.
With strawberry versions of doughnuts, funnel cakes, waffle bowls, cheesecake, gelato and more, this festival is a berry lover’s dream. But the treats aren’t all to see — there also is live music, contests, food trucks, tournaments, runs and craft vendors.
