Dayton Free Events | Troy Strawberry Festival

 

The Troy Strawberry Festival will begin tonight at 6pm for Opening Ceremonies and end on Sunday, June 5 at 6pm.  It is one  of my favorites  because I absolutely love strawberries!!  Trust me, there are so many strawberry inspired food choices that it is nearly impossible to pick just a few.  The weekend is not only packed with food,  but lots of entertainment and activities, too!  This is one festival you will not want to miss!!
