The 69th annual Strawberry Festival in Adairville, Kentucky began yesterday, and continues through next Saturday (March 16th 2015).  The  Little Miss Pageant and the Senior Miss Pageant will take place Tuesday.  Rides, crafts, and karaoke begin this Thursday, with live music, a pet show, a kiddie parade, and the opening of the Strawberry Shoppe (homemade strawberry ice cream, strawberry shortcake!) to follow on Friday.

Next Saturday’s the big day, beginning with a pancake breakfast 6 a.m. until 9:30 a.m., while a reenactment of the duel in which Andrew Jackson killed Charles Dickinson takes place at 1:30 p.m. There’ll be an art exhibit, a Native American Exhibit, a baby contest, dignitaries, a parade at 2 p.m., and a Civil War demo after the parade. The festival will be capped by live music and an Italian buffet on the square. For further information, see the Logan County website.
