Garden Grove's Strawberry Festival Starts Tomorrow
It's that time of year again: festival season. And this weekend Garden Grove is hosting one of the big ones: The Garden Grove Strawberry Festival starts tomorrow, Friday at 1 p.m. and continues through the weekend. As with every year, there will be a parade, strawberry-related food, carnival rides, entertainment, and appearances from celebrities like Sally Kellerman from M*A*S*H.
And if you want to get a piece of the giant strawberry shortcake--the centerpiece of the festival's opening ceremonies--it will be sliced up and given away (again, free) on tomorrow at 6 p.m. in the Showmobile at Main and Acacia streets to all who come.
If you don't get a slice of that, our Dave Lieberman recommends the strawberry shortcake from Job's Daughters, which he dubs "the only reason for people over the age of 25 to visit the Garden Grove Strawberry Festival: the most insane strawberry shortcake in the county."
