Strawberry Shortcake Festival
(and craft sale)

Thursday, June 10th from 11:30am to 4:30pm (Approx)

 

The Third Congregational Church on 94 Miner Street in Middletown, CT is holding its annual Strawberry Shortcake Festival, tomorrow, Thursday, June 10th from 11:30am to 4:30pm.

This festival has been going on for over 120 years.. yes, you heard me correctly 120 years.  People in the area look forward to this event every year.  The strawberries are native to the area and picked fresh. 

On top of fresh strawberries and homemade biscuits.. what tastes better... you got it REAL HOMEMADE WHIPPED CREAM.  My mouth is salvating already.

If you haven't been by, tomorrow is your opportunity to do so.. and I bet you'll be hooked for next year.  This year I have volunteered to help out.. I will be there from 9:00am on.  So if you are in the area.. stop by, say *HI* and have a strawberry shortcake at the same time.  The cost is $6.50 for a large, and $4.50 for a small (coffee or tea included). This is the same price as last year. 

As a heads up.. these are so large that they are a meal unto themselves.. so come with an appetite.

If you have no time to sit down and enjoy here at the church.. THERE IS ALWAYS TAKE OUT. Call 860.632.1486 on the day of the sale only.

Need I say more? 

Now that your mouth is watering.. I don't see how it can't be at this point.  I'll see you tomorrow.

I can remember eating a lot of strawberry shortcake with Bisquick biscuits while growing up. That's definitely a summertime favorite.

Valerie - How I wish I could!  We certainly are long overdue for our meeting! :)  I've got such a full day tomorrow I'm already exhausted just thinking about it.  I'll give you a call and let's see if we can finally set up a day for us to get together.  It's long overdue!!

Valerie, it does look special good, and I have a major weakness for strawberries, but I'm not even in Ct today. So sad

Ed.. I know.  I read your blog about going to RainCamp in DC.  Hope it is nicer there than here.  I'd save you a shortcake, but it WILL BE too soggy by the time you get back.
