LOXLEY, Ala. (WKRG) — Loxley Municipal Park is being transformed for the 32nd Annual Baldwin County Strawberry Festival where there is just about something for everybody.
“If you are a three-year-old kid and you want to find a pop gun if you want to get your favorite cheese-steak we’ve got that here. If you want arts and crafts, if you like old cars and we have a great entertainment line up,” says festival chairman Greg Walker.
“It’s our favorite one.” It has been a regular stop for Lynn Faggard for the last fifteen years. “It’s just a relaxed atmosphere, a family-oriented event. So many activities for the children.”
With any outdoor festival, weather can be a challenge. “We are hoping you are doing the no rain dance back at the office,” says Walker. “But, it’s springtime in the south. If it’s raining now it won’t be in an hour and we’re still here.”
With a better than average chance of rain Saturday night, vendors are keeping their fingers crossed says Faggard. “We always watch closely but it hardly ever turns out to be as bad as the weatherman warns us about. So, I’m going on that hope.”
The festival runs Saturday and Sunday from 9 to 5. Parking and admission are free.
