Celebrate the taste of Strawberry


Time once again for the tiny town of Strawberry to celebrate its namesake festival, Saturday all over Strawberry.

If you can imagine it made with a strawberry, wearing a strawberry or having a strawberry painted on it, you'll find it at the Strawberry Fest.

The fun begins at 10 a.m. and runs until 4 p.m. Sponsored by the Rim Country Regional Chamber of Commerce, vendors, restaurants and residents will be putting out the red carpet to welcome folks from all over.

A new addition to the Strawberry tradition is the Llama fun run set for 10 a.m. and sponsored by the Fossil Creek Llamas and Strawberry Yama Llama 4-H Club. Guests will be invited to partner up with a llama and try to beat the clock.

Back in Strawberry, you can sip a Strawberry Sparkle, feast on strawberry pie and chocolate dipped strawberries, or walk a llama.

Quilt show

Starting today in Pine is the Pine-Strawberry Historical Society and the Strawberry Patchers Annual Quilt Show. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Patchers will be showing off old and new quilts sewn by hand with delicate precision. The show is in the Cultural Hall at the Community Center. Also on hand will be the "Lacey Ladies" women dedicated to keeping the art of hand lace making alive and well.

Yard sale

If you are in Pine for the shuttle service to Strawberry, you might want to browse the Rim Country Kiwanis Rummage Sale. Set to open at 8 a.m., the group will haggle with you until 4 p.m. at the Community Center. No early birds, but what you buy will support the scholarship program Kiwanians have set up for our students.
