In my previous post I wrote about the Stouffville Strawberry Festival which took place last Thursday to Sunday. I’m happy to say that it was a successful event; bigger and better than last year’s! We had roads blocked off for the festival and the town centre became a big festival ground. There were carnival rides and games, food and craft vendors, family games, contests, performances and entertainment. It was great to see the community coming out and enjoying the festival. We had visitors from out of town too. On Sunday, the festival ended with a Strawberry Social after a community church service. I love the fact that we have a church service as one of the festival’s programme.
The weather was cooperative throughout. On Saturday, showers were forecasted for the afternoon, which would ruin the street market, but the rain only came late in the evening when the festival was over for the day except for a night performance in the marquee. We spent so much time in the sun, walking to and around the festival that we all got a shade darker even though we had sunscreen on. My feet has criss-cross patterns on them from my shoe straps!
I had fun at the festival with my family although I was constantly on the phone posting pictures and updating the status on the festival’s Facebook page. Ok, without further ado, here are some pictures from the festival. More photos at
