Grow With It at Strawberry Days in Strawberry Point This June

Have you seen the world’s largest strawberry? Come to Strawberry Point, Iowa and experience Strawberry Days Grow with It, Friday, June 8, through Sunday, June 10.

Friday night starts off with games in the Inger Park, from 6 to 10 p.m. Enjoy a family fun night with the kiddie parade and contest. The Crowning of Lil’ Mr. and Miss will take place. The night comes to a close with an entertainment show and the children's movie “Sing” starts at dark. 

Starting off early on Saturday with a 5K walk/run in Campbell Park, registration is at 7:30 a.m. and the walk/run begins an hour later at 8:30. My favorite part of Strawberry Days is the parade, which starts at 11 a.m. Bring your lawn chair and pick a spot along the parade route. Community spirit will light up with a display of flags carried by veterans. You'll hear the Starmont Band play music, see the lights and sirens of local firetrucks and ambulances, and watch the floats throwing candy out for the kids. Then, walk over to the carnival from 12-4 p.m. It has a new location this year, at the Civic Center grounds. Enjoy rides, games, a water slide, a peddle tractor pull, the bean bag tournament, a caricature artist, henna by Jenna, and free strawberries and ice-cream while supplies last. In the evening, Beau Timmerman will be performing. For adults, a beer garden will be open.

On Sunday, back by popular demand will be the truck, tractor, and semi pull, beginning at 11 a.m. at Campbell Park. Once again you can enjoy FREE strawberries and ice-cream while supplies last, starting at 11:30. Come cheer on your favorite truck, tractor, or semi.

It just wouldn't be an Iowa summer without delicious strawberries and ice-cream in Strawberry Point, this June.
