Florida Strawberry Festival
The strawberry is king at this annual festival that takes place in the winter strawberry capital of the world. Every day is jammed with events including the infamous strawberry shortcake-eating contest. Famous music acts, juried shows, a grand parade, an assortment of rides for adults and children, games of chance and a wide variety of food highlight the event. Plant City is a tiny town. To find the festival, take I-4 east from Tampa to Exit 10, Branch Forbes Road, or Exit 11, Thonotosassa Road, and follow the signs.
I would like to see more nicer people (staff). People at food places, rides and Information office, they need to remember that we are customers and they should not take advantage of people. The staff don't smile and they talk to you like giving you orders at all time.
If I am going to a fair I would like to go and have without hurting my pocket. I went for the first time and I did not like a thing. They charge to parking and the entrance, ok, but inside they charge for everything. At least the rides should be free, come on. On top of that if you have a toddler you have to buy tickets for the toddler and the parent to get on the carousel, ridiculous. They don't let you know about that and then u can not return the tickets so that way you have to spend more money (to just be standing up next to toddler), or the tickets you already bought will go away as soon as possible so you have to buy more. And if you want to talk about it at the information office, they wont care because they are getting money and you are spending. They will fight with you and then ignore you. Horrible place to spend time with the kids and the family without hurting your pocket. I rather go to Disney wher the money is really worth spending.
We love the entertainment, the food, the cleanliness of the place, and the way everything runs so smoothly. We come every year and highly recommend it to anyone who is visiting Florida at that time of year. Keep up the good work.
This Festival reminds me of a Fair up north called the "Big E" it's huge with lots to look at lots of entertainment and great strawberry shortcake! Went last year for the first time with family we had a great time and plan on going back again this year ...just hope it's not as hot! Jo Dee Mesina here we come! Love Ya Strawberry Fest!
