We went to the Florida Strawberry Festival today and we had a great time!  It has all of the typical fair food, rides and games plus fresh strawberries that are locally grown in Plant City and the surrounding farm land.  The strawberries were so sweet and the strawberry shortcake was awesome. 

It was a beautiful day with sunny skies and 80 degrees.  It was the warmest day we've had this year!

The most fun we had was at the pig races!  LOL!  The announcer was very funny as were the pig's names.  The normal pigs ran around the track, but the huge 300 lb. pot belly pigs shown below barely walked around the track.  Mostly they stopped to crap, to root for food or to scratch themselves on the fence.  It was too funny!
