Cedarburg’s Strawberry Festival – In Review

strawberries

Cedarburg is known for many things, one of which being the Strawberry Festival, which is now celebrating its 31st year. People come from miles around each year to partake in everything strawberry, from wine and beer to chicken, brats, and even salsa. You can, of course, find fresh strawberries to buy and take home home with you. But, there’s more than just food and drink along Washington Avenue. There are hundreds of vendors selling things such as clothing, jewelry, books, toys, and plenty of other homemade crafts.

It’s more than food, drink, and shopping at the Strawberry Festival. Prepare to enjoy live music and games as well. I even saw people getting their hair done! It was quite the sight to see. There’s so much going on, you’ll never experience it all in one day. But that’s okay, they make a weekend out of it. It’s definitely something you’ll want to make sure you get to experience!

If you’re looking to spend the day there, I would suggest, however, to make sure you have a decent amount of money with you. Some things are reasonably priced, but others aren’t. If you’re on a budget though, you can make it work to go and have a good time.

It was our first time going and I wasn’t sure what to think. A number of people I know go every year, but I was told it gets very crowded and it can be a bit intimidating. It was indeed crowded, but it was a lot of fun. We enjoyed seeing the many different booths, trying various strawberry delights, and listening to the music we heard along our walk.

I would recommend going, just be sure to bring sunscreen and drink plenty of water, especially if it’s a day like today. My personal favorites from today were the steak sandwich and strawberry shortcake. I did also buy some fresh strawberries, will be trying those tomorrow; they look delicious!

If you enjoy events such as the Cedarburg Strawberry Festival, I’d also highly recommend Maxwell Street Days. They have four dates throughout the year, the next one being July, 17th. Cedarburg is a tourist friendly city, with so much to offer. Stop on out and check out the many events going on, you won’t be disappointed!

My Tribute to Wisconsin

Image

From the land of the frozen tundra, I say hello

Where cheese is made & beer does freely flow

Born & raised in this place they call Wisconsin

This is where many of my friends are & also my kin

 

There are times when I dream of moving away

Because of the many cold & snowy days

But in the end, I find it difficult to leave this place

It’s like Cheers here, so many know my name & face

 

Those I hold most dear to my heart live here

So away from my home land, I am not ready to steer

And hey there are some beautiful sights here to see

Like spring time in Wisconsin, nature in its most wondrous glory

 

Come with me to Little Green and swim for awhile

Or let us go the Menomonee River Parkway & walk a few miles

See the ducks as they fly over Devil’s Lake

Or gaze upon the glorious sunrises in Cottage Grove as you wake

 

From Milwaukee all the way up to Green Bay & beyond

This is my home & of it I am quite fond

And even if I should ever from this place depart

Wisconsin will always be where I got my start

 

And know what no matter where I might be

I will always be loyal to my sports teams

Green & gold run deep within my veins each & every day

As does my love for the Brew Crew, no matter how bad we play

 

There’s just something about this place I call home

I have had plenty of chances to leave & yet from here I won’t roam

Perhaps someday I will find the strength to leave

But as you can see now, my love for my home is on my sleeve

 

Wisconsin, how I really do love you

Anyone who knows me knows this to be true

And as it has from the very start

So shall it always be that it has my heart
