Plan now to be a part of the biggest winter festival in the state of Florida. You think of Florida as being the state for Citrus crops, sunshine and beaches, however, Florida has one other big surprise. Plant City, Florida (just east of Tampa, Florida) is the Strawberry Capital of the World. Yes – Strawberries! And if you ever drove down any highway in or around Plant City you will see Strawberry Fields Forever.
Plant City is also know for one other thing. It is the host city of the Strawberry Festival every year. The Strawberry Festival draws the best entertainment from the biggest country stars in show business. Imagine in one week seeing such stars as Alabama, Mel Tillis, Scotty McCreery, Sawyer Brown, Ronnie Milsap, Sara Evans, Ricky Scaggs, The Oak Ridge Boys, Loretta Lynn, Parmalee and REBA.
Then if you want non country it offers John Legend, Boys II Men, Bobby Vinton and dozens of other stars. There is even an appearance of Kevin Costner’s own band Modern West.
Now sample hundreds of different strawberry recipes and other great food the festival has to offer, the midway, the exhibits and attractions from all over the country. This is great fun for the entire family!
This year the festival lasts from February 26 to March 8, 2015. Get away from the cold and enjoy Florida this year, then discover the hidden treasures this great state has.
