Sliding Headfirst into the Strawberry Patch

Strawberry connected elements are in season this June in upstate New York as the Rumble Ponies go all in to connect with the local flavor.

The Owego Strawberry Festival is an annual event held in Owego, a village in upstate New York, USA. The festival typically takes place during the second weekend in June and celebrates the arrival of the strawberry season.

The festival features a wide variety of activities, including live music, carnival rides, arts and crafts vendors, and of course, plenty of delicious strawberry-themed food and drinks. Visitors can enjoy fresh strawberry shortcake, strawberry smoothies, strawberry crepes, and other treats made with locally grown strawberries.

In addition to the food and entertainment, the Owego Strawberry Festival also hosts a variety of events and competitions, such as a strawberry pie-eating contest, a strawberry-themed parade, and a 5K race.

The festival typically draws large crowds of locals and visitors from surrounding areas, and is a popular event for families and individuals of all ages. It is considered to be one of the largest and most popular festivals in upstate New York and is a great way to celebrate the start of summer while enjoying the local community and culture.
