Cloudy skies and scattered rain did little to dampen festivities at the Afton Strawberry Festival on June 23-24. Festivalgoers enjoyed vendor booths and live music as well as a smorgasboard of strawberry fare.
Rebecca Nickerson with Afton Area Business Association, the festival's sponsor, said they handed out more than 1,000 strawberries over the weekend — a sign of a good turnout, she said.
"We ran out early both days — we couldn't keep up, I'll say that," Nickerson said. "I think everybody had a good time, the strawberries were perfect. It wasn't too hot, and I think it went well both days."
