Central Florida, the Strawberry Festival is here
The sweet scent of strawberries and fried carnival treats blankets Central Florida starting Thursday, courtesy of the Florida Strawberry Festival.

Expect to get your fill of strawberry-themed treats — from strawberry shortcake to strawberry spaghetti — in nearby Plant City through March 10.

You can also visit the Neighborhood Village, where area artisans show and sell their wares, while also competing in various contests. Not to mention the livestock contests and judging. All of this can be enjoyed between rides on carnival classics like the Berry Big Wheel and Pharaoh's Fury.

Musical performances will be featured throughout the festival, with well-known  artists representing different genres. Performing artists include Kirk Franklin, The Beach Boys, Black Eyed Peas and Flo Rida. Ticket prices for each show vary and can be found on the festival's website.
