31st Annual Starlight Strawberry Festival This Weekend

St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, located in beautiful Starlight, Indiana, once again invites strawberry lovers to the annual Strawberry Festival.

Adults and children alike will love piling their berries as high as possible at the famous "Build Your Own Strawberry Shortcake" station, and the wide variety of frozen strawberry fruit drinks and chocolate covered strawberries are always a big hit as well.

Those seeking a little more than just the sweet delights the festival has to offer will not be disappointed by the buffet-style fried chicken and ham dinner. It's complete with all the traditional fixings, including chicken & dumplings, corn, slaw, green beans with new potatoes and dessert.

Bring the whole family out for a fun-filled day of food, crafts, and kid-friendly games and rides. There will be carnival rides, booth games and even soapbox derby racing. Visitors can enjoy live entertainment throughout the day.

Adults can join around the tables in the Wine & Beer garden to enjoy beer and award winning wine from Huber Winery, and also play blackjack and showdown, or just relax and enjoy the music and hospitality.

Running enthusiasts can even make a morning of it and come enjoy Starlight's beautiful scenery up close during the 5K Run/Walk for the Berries at 8:00 a.m. Saturday.

For more information please call 812-923-5785 or visit the St. John Starlight Web site.
