Through March 2 to March 12, 2017, the Florida Strawberry Festival will be in full swing. Since 1930, this annual festival spans through ten days filled with concerts, rides, and strawberries. Located in Plant City, Florida, this festival entertains people from all ages. 

As you walk through the grounds, there are a large array of food choices to choose from. From generic fair food, such as hot dogs and burgers, to the unique fried Oreos and chocolate dipped bacon. It is truly a delicacy in need to be tried at least once in your life. Another big find that is only located at the Florida Strawberry Festival is the St. Clement Make-Your-Own Strawberry Shortcake Ministry. Here, you pay $4.00 to be given either a cake or a biscuit to make your strawberry short cake.
