North Salem Historical Society to host annual Strawberry Festival
Update: The Strawberry Festival has been canceled due to anticipated thunderstorms in the area. No new date has been set.
The North Salem Historical Society invites community members to come together this Sunday for old-fashioned family fun at the organization’s 31st annual Strawberry Festival.
The Festival, which began in 1992, is the Society’s premier event, held each year in early July. It aims to bring community members together in celebration of the season while also promoting awareness and membership for the Historical Society.
New this year is a ‘best in show’ pet contest, which is open to not just the usual dogs and cats but also to less common pets such as pigs, donkeys and lizards. Pet owners are encouraged to dress their pets (and themselves) to represent a historical person, place, time or theme.
“Dress up your kitty as Abraham Linkitten or your lizard as George Washingtongue,” urged Festival organizers. “Come prepared to laugh and have fun!”
Other amusements will include creative activities for kids of all ages, live music, a vintage Croton Falls Fire truck, and games in the field, organized by members of the Croton Falls Fire Department. Not to be missed: homemade strawberry shortcake served by North Salem Historical Society members.
The North Salem Historical Society Strawberry Festival will take place Sunday, July 9 from 1:00 - 4:00 p.m. at 81 Keeler Lane, North Salem. Click here for Best in Show registration form and here for waiver.
