Afton Strawberry Festival held last weekend
Last weekend proved to be ripe for a new event in Afton.
Afton Area Business Association’s newest event, Afton Strawberry Festival, was held Saturday and Sunday throughout Afton’s Old Village.
Strawberry Festival, which was sponsored in partnership with Afton’s Memorial Lutheran Church, was started this year as a new event to replace May Fair, which was canceled due to continuous years being faced with inclement weather.
Strawberry Festival offered a variety of activities for families including art vendors, live music, crafts, face painting and even a strawberry shortcake eating contest.
