  1. Yes that is what it is. Most people rave about the strawberry shortcake they churn out in bulk in one of the tents/buildings, but I find it blah.

    That said we always enjoy the state fair atmosphere, and if you get the strawberries from a stand right outside the festival they are fresh, in season and ridiculously cheap compared to the grocery store - buy a case and eat them all the way back to Orlando - you'll be stained with strawberry juice but lovin' it

    1. at the risk of sounding like Bubba -- strawberry shortcake, strawberry pie, strawberry milkshakes, strawberry jam...

      It's the county fair, but spotlights strawberries - if it were possible to overdose, I'd be headed for rehab.
