Strawberry Festival Dates, Location Set
The Fulton County Chamber of Commerce and Tourism invites all to take part in the 21th annual Strawberry Festival June 10 and 11. Activities are scheduled to get under way at 10 a.m. both days, and continue until 9 p.m. on Friday and 4 p.m. on Saturday. Lots of strawberry treats will be featured at the chamber’s booth, along with various delicious food items on sale at the vendor booths located at the Mc- Connellsburg Alumni Association building.
Friday night presents The Mercersburg Community Band in concert at 7:30 p.m. indoors on stage at the old high school building. The popular local amateur talent show has been moved to Saturday, getting under way at noon. Anyone wishing to enter the Talent Show should register by calling the chamber office at 485-4064. Contestants will be competing for a top prize of $100. This special event is sponsored by Tower Bank.
This year’s festival is adding more things to do: a contest for babies and toddlers, a coloring contest for kindergarten and first-grade students from all county school districts, a strawberry recipe contest, a countywide strawberry window decorating contest, and a strawberry capping event.
If you are interested in being a vendor or a participant in any of the events and need information, call the chamber office at 485-4064.
